James, You're right this is kind of the Groom Lake or boneyard of Indiana. Perhaps there are some secret Keystone or Phoenix columns made of titanium hidden in a storage building along with one of my favorite Indiana bridges (Salt Creek Bridge Old SR 158) that sadly disappeared.

In the movie "The Irishman" I believe this bridge is shown towards the end, but I could be wrong.

Thanks for sharing, and glad its still standing. Any pictures of the Cole road pony truss next to it?
