Formerly Frisco, now BNSF

Bridge (Indiana)
Posted June 10, 2017

I see no bridge, so it must be lost?

Posted June 9, 2017

Per MODOT, the bridge is scheduled to close June 12, 2017 for replacement

Posted June 4, 2017

NBI says replacement bridge was built 1938.

Posted May 30, 2017

No NBI info available. Bridge dates have been obliterated

Posted May 30, 2017

Date is uncertain. The original listing had this along modern-day US 69. Although I corrected the coordinates, the NBIseems to have no info on this bridge.

Posted May 12, 2017

I checked this on ACME Mapper : it's on an abandoned railroad alignment on a predecessor to Conrail Railroad.

Posted May 12, 2017

My 2 Pfennigs: people aren't paying attention. They are talking on their phones or otherwise distracted. Or they simply don't care.

Posted May 10, 2017

Bridge is closed following an accident.

Another find job of finding a bridge not in the NBI.

Posted March 28, 2017

Not list in the NBI for some reason
