Special thanks to Reann Poray of the Plainfield-Guilford Township Public Library for the access to the wonderful photos of the bridges in and around Plainfield!

Posted August 6, 2018

Bridge is open, at least since Tom Hoffman, stated February 2018. Looking Good!!

Apparently this was fabricated from a storage unit from the city jail. (I do not know anything about the storage unit) It was fabricated by Graber Post Buildings from nearby Montgomery Indiana. I got my information from Kip Kelly of the Washington Parks Department.

Great News!!! And I love the float!

Posted July 16, 2018

Yes. I wasn't sure how it should be listed.

Posted July 8, 2018

Yes, these pix do suck, but I'll try to get a little closer next time

Posted July 8, 2018

Getting pix on IN 59 is like playing Frogger.

Posted July 8, 2018

Oops!! I mean DNR. Sorry

Posted July 8, 2018

It appears, according to INDot, that this bridge will be relocated to Blue River Park near Shelbyville, on a pedestrian pathway. https://www.in.gov/activecalendar_dnr/displaymedia.aspx?what...

Posted July 7, 2018

Alright Tony! Good to see you back at it!

Posted July 4, 2018

Damn! A Busy bridge with lotsa vegetation around it. Will try to get REAL pix later in the fall.

Posted July 2, 2018

Will go back in the fall and get better photos. The Lemon Creek pony truss used to run parallel to this

Posted June 23, 2018

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.

Posted June 15, 2018

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