Thought it to be so, considered both Warren and Pratt classification listings, thing is a beast over an otherwise non-beastly creek. Great dog - he loved his cat-walk.....or dog-walk.

Bit disappointing, slightly similar to this one in Wyandotte Co., this is no more than a pipe-hanger bridge https://bridgehunter.com/ks/wyandotte/bh45080/ . Although there are signs of a timber bridge being in this spot at one time, currently there is only the pipe/garbage dam. Possible there is a low-water paved crossing under the muck which may have been visible at one time via satellite

John - little late on this reply - parked in cul-de-sac to the NE, and walked through open lands to SW until I came to it, basically followed the creek

Had not previously noticed that old listing for whatever reason....wreason....wow that old thru truss a beauty!! sad sad sad

Fun modern bridge I found on satellite this week, a hearty bridge with nice wood planking over Washington Creek just east of the town of Lone Star, Kansas.

Visited this spot today - bridge was replaced by a low-water crossing

Posted August 5, 2017

Visited this spot today - the bridge is long gone - only slightest traces of one abutment survive

There is no bridge at this pinned location

Posted August 4, 2017

Giant open field at this current pinned location - no bridge, former or current, in sight.

I see that I made an error back in December in my description of this bridge.... it is in fact on Y Road

Posted August 3, 2017

This is the same bridge listed as "Eight Mile Creek Bridge" on Cowley County, Kansas page - one of the listings should be deleted to avoid confusion.

Posted July 31, 2017

No, I didn't see any in the area, this one is still very much open, maybe a little bit more time left than expected .....

Posted July 31, 2017

Wow....this one is quite a statement, really beautiful, little bit tricky to get to, fantastic elevation over calm River
