The bridge has been neglected lately. Area is grown up and the graffiti is getting a little outta control.

Posted June 23, 2018

I don't think a welding torch'll fix this one. Don't look like it will be repaired. East end obviously collapsed, but looks like the west side was purposely busted through, maybe to keep four wheelers off it. There is no reason to repair this guy because it is basically an alley. The area floods so much too. The house on the west side now looks deserted.

100% agree! My kids, who don't even give a crap about bridges, loved it!

Posted June 10, 2018

Nothing left to show that a bridge was once there. I do know that Bridge Street did have a Through Truss we used to take when I was in High School (late 70's).

I fixed the coordinates on this bridge. It was listed at same location of IN 142 Little Rock Creek.

Posted June 10, 2018

I returned today and rechecked. It is no longer an arch. The road is very busy and there is not much of an angle to get a good picture so sorry about crappy photos. The 142 Kivett and 142 Little Rock Creek bridges are still arches.

Getting a little tiresome

One of the several treasures that we have in Indiana. And Brian Toone, you got more nerve than I have!

Work has recently been started on replacing the bridge. Bowling Green will not be the same

Posted May 27, 2018

It sure looks to me like there will soon be very little pony truss left.

Visited this bridge May 19 and it is currently closed for a little remodeling. I talked with local resident Jack Pace and was told that on May 18, the deck, which has been cleared of pavement and restored to wooden, caught on fire and burned for quite a bit. He was told that inspectors feared that it may be down for a while.

I've been checking out what you have so far and it looks great!

That's not an argument, that's just contradiction!

Does anyone know what the stars are supposed to mean that are cut into this bridge? The bridge has really been beat up, but still is sturdy
