So what is this? I added it due to the fact you can see it from the Interstate Bridge from the north and from Google Map it looks like a real truss. Maybe a relocated truss that is being reused as a dock ramp of sorts? Anyway, is it a real truss bridge?

This bridge is a mystery bridge. Apparently there was (still is?) a bowstring pony truss located at the French Lick Casino. Anybody know anything about this one?

I (James McCray) am from Louisville, KY and have hunted bridges going on more than 10 years here. If you or anyone are interested in bridges in the local area feel free to contact me if you would like to set up a "guided tour" of sorts; or if you would like me to set up a kind of a bridgehunt "scavenger" hunt list for you I will be glad to do that as well. I can also recommend another fellow bridgehunter (looking at you J.P.) who is more familiar with the Indiana side of Louisville. My email is jamesinslocomb@yahoo.com or phone is (502) 403-9544. There are many historic, beautiful, old, and accessable bridges around here and are worth checking out, however, it can get overwelming if you are new or unfamiliar with the area.

Amanda,

If you cannot possibly contact the person who owns the copyright to a pic, then copy the website link to the related photo and share the link. That way there is no illegal copying or violation.

If you want to show what a particular bridge looks like, but cannot obtain the permission, then sharing the link to where the photo can be found is good.

That's why there is a place on this website that says something like: add link

Do that and you are directing humans to the url where the picture or whatever can be found.

I hope this clears up confusion because I think that on both sides of the coin this is easily solved.

I think a good idea for this bridge is to close the bridge to vehicles, but leave it open for pedestrians as a park. Have the newer parallel 66 bridges (I-44 or Rt 66 4 lane bypass) as vehicle bridges and the D.E.B. as a pedestrian park.

This is pretty sad that this bridge has been destroyed as it was the only bedstead in the direct Louisville, KY area. If anyone has any info on its history, please chime in.

Posted April 19, 2018

Any clue about this bridge? Seems historic, but newly relocated to this place.

Posted April 10, 2018

I am going to throw my 2 cents in here....

Some of you think its an 1889 bridge and some of you think its an 1860's bridge.

I say its an old bridge.

There.

Issue settled.

The bridge will live on.

Good news: The bridge will be taken apart and be reused in another location. See: http://www.wellsvilledaily.com/news/20171207/parts-of-tappan...

Seems like the TZB is going to be reused in some way. So that's at least not all bad. See: http://www.wellsvilledaily.com/news/20171207/parts-of-tappan...

As far as my daughter is concerned, no "headache bar" is needed. She will freely supply the "headache" to you if you supply the over weight truck!

Merry Christmas

This bridge is not lost, it is placed in storage to be used as part of a trail. See: http://www.route66world.com/states/oklahoma-states/historic-...

I really hope that this bridge was really built by Vikings as its name implies. It certainly looks old enough that it could be true.
