Line was abandoned from DeWitt to Eldridge in 1931 based on the book I just added to the sources section. Based on the lightweight construction, it was relocated here. Something that, based on the many relocations John Marvig's uncovered, comes as no shock.

Posted January 22, 2018

It is, as the only other railroad bridge in the general vicinity was the Rock Island/BCRN bridge at McCausland, but that line was heading northeasterly towards Clinton.

Also it (And all other bridges on that line.) were gone by 1937, as they don't appear in aerial views from that year.

RE: Documentation of posted data
Posted January 20, 2018

I concur with the sentiment.

It's not that hard to copy/paste the information source's URL into the sources section, nor is is difficult for one to use the new "Add Document" feature to upload, say, a copy of a NRHP form.

Posted January 19, 2018

According multiple local sources and the .pdf I added, what is currently extant is a replica span.

I'll let the rivet counters decide if we should re-mark it as "Open to traffic" or leave it marked as "Replaced"

Doug, the images you added are of the original Bollman (Not Howe) swing span for https://bridgehunter.com/ia/clinton/bh55028/

Posted January 15, 2018

Mick, John is a contributor here, and the bridge already has an entry: https://bridgehunter.com/sd/minnehaha/bh36416/

Posted January 13, 2018

No problem.

I appreciate the stuff you've been finding and adding, and I guarantee I'm not the only user who does.

Another bit of info, Leslie: Bridgehunter automatically adds the state to the city name, so you don't need to add ", OR" to the city, the site will automatically add ", Oregon" for you after you submit the data.

Posted January 12, 2018

It's a Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad trestle.

Posted January 12, 2018

No problem, you're new to the site so you don't know the ins/outs/quirks yet.

Posted January 12, 2018

Leslie, each iteration of a bridge should be its own entry.

You could convert one of the duplicates you added to be for the second iteration of the Madison Street Bridge.
