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

Merry Christmas from my kids, Analin and Isaac,me,and the Elrod Road Bridge.

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.

Just added this one. On the view on Google Earth you can see where the abandoned alignment of US 40-National Road crosses a creek with a bridge. Now the old alignments of Nationl Road in this area are usually original arch bridges. So can one figure this out? Is this one of those?

Posted November 15, 2016

Like the great Pyramids of Egypt, or Stonehenge, or various Aztec and Mayan Ruins of Mexico and South America this will remain a mystery for great minds to discuss and debate until Christ comes back. I will just default and say that it was the aliens who built the bridge for a purpose only they know. Perhaps there is an X-Files episode that covers it or it has been discussed at length on the Coast to Coast Radio Show.

I added the page to bridgehunter to reflect that the bridges are now relocated and open to the public in Koteewi Park, Noblesville, Indiana

This bridge seems to be in a field. The river it supposed to cross seems to have shifted to the north. The road that it supposed to carry does not exist, but somebody with greater knowledge than I can chime in on this.

Posted July 13, 2016

Here are some pictures taken from 2001. The pics are of my friends when we took a trip to the Trussell. One can see the steep sides of the bridge approaches. The bridge is still there and probably will outlast our lifetimes.
