Wood Bridge (Illinois)
Posted March 16, 2021

This bridge seems to be relocated here. It is a queen post pony truss and its called the "wood bridge" because of its wooden deck. It has a builders plaque, but because it was a private gated residence and no one seemed home to answer my buzzing, I could only snap shots from a distance.

Could this be a luten arch?

NBI build date of 1970 may be a rehab date

Posted January 28, 2021

NBI lists this bridge built in 1975, but this is wrong. This is an original Route 66 bridge built 1927. The 1975 date is a rehab date when they put guardrails on the bridge. The steel beams and wood deck have never been altered.

I have been to this bridge. This bridge is at the butt end of a dead end road. At the eastern end of the bridge is a gated private ranch property for one household. That being said, it would be a huge waste of state or whatever tax payer money to demolish and build a new bridge just for one household at the end of a dead end road. Perhaps shore up the support column. Heck, maybe turn over ownership of the bridge to the rancher. Why would the state want to spend money maintaining or rebuilding a bridge that has no other traffic except the one person or family living at the other end? Just throwing out questions here.

You can just see the bridge in this pic towards the top left of the photo: http://www.entzauction.com/listings/1308/

So, a local crack addict (by his own admission) who was under the bridge said that the bridge is called the Crazy Awesome Bridge and was built by Abraham Lincoln himself, which if correct, would place the construction of this bridge in the early 1800's. Anyway what design is this?

This bridge will be relocated and reconstructed.
