Dupe? (bridgehunter.com/in/fountain/snoddy-mill/ or BH 68239)

The major reconstructions of the bridge included the new east abutment and covering the timber pilings in concrete. Beside those and other additions including a new deck, hand railings, lighting, etc., the original bridge was left mostly intact.

Although the railroad was built in 1881, I believe that the original timber pile bridge was replaced with this bridge sometime around 1900-1910, possibly when Illinois Traction first started using the track.

But there is already a page for the 1900's bridge. ID is BH 43085

THIS BRIDGE IS AN ACCIDENTAL DUPLICATE OF BH 56373.

Photo 2 is not the Gilbert Street Bridge. It is the Woolen Mill Bridge.

Hey Mike, do you have any info on Short's Bridge?

Posted July 7, 2012

Is this a photo of the round supports that Mike was talking about?

Posted July 6, 2012

Who keeps editing this page by adding the railroad initials? I would like it to stop, please.

Posted July 5, 2012

I wonder then, where would the wrong build dates come from?

Posted July 5, 2012

Where did this new info of the build date come from? The Iowa Engineer article says it was built around 1885, a different article says 1884.

Posted August 24, 2011

How in any way is this bridge historic?

Posted August 14, 2011

Huh, that's odd, because everyone else says that it collapsed and a replica was built. I'm really comfused.

Posted August 14, 2011

The bridge DID partially collapse and the rest of the timbers were used in the replica that was built.

James,

Here are a few pictures of the old railroad yard east of town which was abandoned in 1940 and razed in 1941. All of these are from the Rankin library, which was formerly the station.

The first picture is a view looking east at the roundhouse and turntable.

The second one is looking west towards town.

The third one is of the coal dock.

The forth one is an aerial view from 1940 after the yard was abandoned.

I hope these are useful to you.
