I agree with bedsteads! We had a crapload in Owen County, Indiana. Now there is only one. Go Nick!!

Posted November 5, 2017

This is such a great bridge! You can see it for quite a distance.

Posted November 5, 2017

I'm happy to see this baby still here! Maybe county has given up on moving.

Posted November 5, 2017

This has just been reopened after repair (Beulah now closed).

Posted November 5, 2017

Temporarily closed. Getting a face-lift.

Posted November 5, 2017

Open again. Has a new deck. I visited the Fountain County bridges yesterday and several have had repairs.

Posted October 28, 2017

Oh yeah, by the way, this is one of Indiana's treasures. The setting with the railroad track winding with the Patoka River is awesome! It's like transporting back in time.

Posted October 28, 2017

I don't know what the status of this move is. I hope Pike County gets it together (no sign that this will happen) and keeps the bridge put.

Posted October 24, 2017

Boo Indiana.

Posted October 13, 2017

It sure as hell does work!! The power line above sizzles and the hairs on your arm will stand on end after a few minutes. It is Twilight-Zone-Worthy!!

Visited bridge with my a couple of my kids. My 21 year old son, who is not exactly enamored with bridges, declared: Best Bridge Ever! Very neat, not the best, of course. Well worth a visit with the fam! Will post a video ASAP.

Posted September 29, 2017

Still not open but it looks ready. Damn fine job too!

Posted September 25, 2017

Crappy name.

Posted September 24, 2017

Yes. I will be making the journey soon.

Posted September 24, 2017

I reckon half the bridges posted here in the past year are non-historic. Just saying.
