No problem Nick, thank you for all the groundwork you do, as Kansas is an under-appreciated state on this site.

And on the same note, I think we all also owe David Jones thanks for the work he's done in Montana, another state with a lot of historic bridges, but few contributors to do field checks.

If you're anywhere near Independence, Nick,the Mid-Continent Public Library has a copy of a book that talks about the bridge when it was new.

(If Tony feels like visiting the Indiana State Library, they've got it too.)

FWIW s topo map from 1965 also call this the Little Tallahatchie River, though those also spell streams wrong from time to time.

See: Worle Creek in Ames, Iowa.

Later topo maps and Google both misspell it as Worrell, when city documents/locals/older topos all use Worle.

According to https://books.google.com/books?id=8cs1AQAAMAAJ&q=Little+Rock... the construction on this bridge began in September 1904.

County still retains ownership, but control and preservation is now in the hands of the Jones County Historical Society, who is fundraising for preservation: http://www.thegazette.com/subject/news/news-track-preservati...

Rumoured to be doomed, but that has been met with public backlash: http://www.thegazette.com/subject/news/government/historic-p...

Different bridge with different bracings.

Re: Box culverts
Posted September 25, 2017

There are already several added to the site, so another can't hurt the site much, IMO.

Whether other members on the site want it posted is another story. I added a few culverts on the old Red Ball Route here in Iowa a few years ago and, despite the structures being from the 1915-1925 era of Iowa State Highway Commission design, the reaction to them being added was exclusively negative.

Dana, from what I've been able to uncover, 1981/2012 were rehab dates for the bridge.

RE: Rail to road
Posted September 12, 2017

Yes, as the bridge's original function was for railroad, not road.
