Description 

The bridge has been abandoned for many years and the deck is missing. It is on what is now a minor country road that dead ends in a field. It was apparently once a major crossing and is a huge bridge that is high above the water. The stream is an old channel of the Verdigris River that has very little water in it. There is a small low water bridge/culvert next to it.
