Looks like this one got bypassed. I found this photo on Facebook.

I visited here the other day myself. The road north of the bridge is gone! But otherwise the bridge remains.

I visited here the other day and photographed the old bridge from the new bridge. The new bridge is quite a bit higher than the old, offering a good view.

This article says that a pony truss bridge on old SR 37 was recently removed. The article is not specifically about this bridge but it does call the bridge out.

Only pony truss bridge I know is this one. :-(

Tony, best way to see this bridge now is to park at Turkeyfoot Nature Park and take the pedestrian trail north. It ends just east of the bridge. I rode my bike up the trail to here -- a little rough on my old road bike, a hybrid or mountain bike would be better.

With two rivers coming through town as they do, Logansport would *have* to be a city of bridges!

I own a postcard of this bridge that places it over the Eel River, not the Wabash. Could we have mislocated it on this page?

Posted March 30, 2020

Is its doom imminent?

I drove by here in early March. They've removed all the trees and brush, exposing this old bridge. It looked pretty sad, frankly. I was in a rush and couldn't stop for a photo.

Could this have been an interurban bridge? The line that went to Crawfordsville?

Here's a photo of the work in progress, courtesy Mark Finch.

This bridge is currently being restored. It's not clear how much of the original bridge they could salvage but what I'm seeing looks like they're very faithful to the original.

Same bridge as in this photo? Sure seems like it oughta be but I don't see the truss span.

I spoke to another person who grew up in Fulton County while the one-span bridge was here. He says he believes the current 1982 bridge is on the same alignment as the old truss bridge that was here, as he has memories as a kid of canoeing down the Tippecanoe under the truss bridge and seeing the stone abutment already abandoned there.

I reached out to the mother of an old, old friend, who grew up in Fulton Co. and remembers the bridge that was here. I sent her this photo, and her response is that not only does this bridge not at all match her memory of the bridge that was here, she has no memory of a bridge that looks like this at all. She described the old one-lane truss bridge that was here: "The bridge that we crossed was of a more square iron frame, and was only a single span instead of the double as this shows."
