Northern Indiana bridge lover, especially those gorgeous old iron ones out in the country.
I remember some very brave school bus drivers maneuvering under this thing... It was narrow and short and had very tight turns on both ends. I know I have some photos of the underpass when it was still intact somewhere.
For the record, here is a photo of the original wooden covered bridge in Peru. The tollhouse on the left of the bridge is actually still there! You can also see a small bridge in front of (to the north of) the covered one, that went over the Wabash & Erie canal I am sorry, I do not know who to credit for this...
Just got a confirmation this bridge was taken down in 1984. I remember long lines of cars waiting for the C&O trains that went across the north end of this bridge....
We ran across this bridge during the Grand Rapids Marathon yesterday during pre-dawn. I have some gorgeous pictures of it with the lighting on that I will add soon.
We ran across this bridge during the Grand Rapids Marathon yesterday! Now I am sad I didn't take more photos... but i have I will add shortly.
I guess the bridge reopened this morning. Found this video, hope you can see it.... https://www.facebook.com/david.birnell/videos/28730647427261...
After some thinking, I do know exactly where this bridge is!!!! I will be out there Thanksgiving weekend and will have to get some new photos when I run across it!!
Well darn, I was at COL park last weekend. I am going to have to look for this next time I am out there. I run the trails there alot, am trying to remember if I have seen this at any point.
Got a photo of the current bridge at this location tonight too, took it while standing on the Auditorium Blvd bridge.
Didn't realize this one didn't have any photos. It's 5 minutes from where I live, going to head out now to get some.
Looks beautiful, so glad it was saved. Will have to road trip down to take a look one of these days.
It was very pretty. I used to go to college a couple miles from here and we would run across this bridge during cross country practices sometimes. I was down there today, so had to stop!
Thank you. Just posted my photos from today.
Got some new pictures of this bridge today. Will post them soon. It doesn't look as bad as the ratings show, but it is really overgrown. We didn't have any fears about walking across it or anything. Could not find any manufacturer information or plate anywhere on the structure, and there is none listed here on the site. Anyone know anything about it's history?
PS Locals call this the Kelly Avenue bridge...
