No need for a gun fight over the name of a bridge lol.

Posted July 29, 2020

I agree it had several names but the one I put us the one commonly used. I drive a truck and I can only due my research when stopped.

I have more sources but I知 currently working and will have to share them later. I always do research for adding bridges on here. I corrected another bridge on here and it was changed back last year and I fixed it again. My great uncle was instrumental on getting that bridge built and I知 also in the Pike County Historical Society and have many resources.

Posted July 28, 2020

I have messaged with the locals and they confirmed that this bridge was referred to as the Spring Creek Covered Bridge. A lot of them remember when it burned.

Posted October 23, 2019

Only two were imploded, not three

Posted August 19, 2019

Nathan Hoth your article you shared isn稚 even about this bridge.

Posted October 20, 2018

A lot of local folks are taking interest in this bridge since I started this project. When the road commissioner calls me back with the verification I will talk more with him on the structural intergity of the bridge and if there are any hopes in saving it.

Posted October 19, 2018

I知 not really sure. When the road commissioner verifys with the county clerk and call me back I will ask him about this.

Posted October 12, 2018

The road to this bridge on the west side has been completely removed and is now a corn field. You have to walk up the hill to get to it. The woman chewed me out on Facebook and said she is reporting it to the owner. I will be obtaining a plat book to do more research. For now I would just stay away. Also the road is currently under weather to it.

Posted November 27, 2017

My parents had permission to go on the property and this was a surprise for them. This is on private property so please ask for permission to go to it.

Photo number 39 is not of this bridge. It痴 a photo of the second train bridge at Quincy Illinois

Posted November 29, 2014

Naples Illinois is located in Scott County Illinois. The first photo states Morgan County. This bridge is already on here like the first comment states.

Posted July 30, 2012

The issue with the closure is that you have to drive to the Pittsfield Exit on I 72 which makes it a 20 mile detour to get to the other side of the bridge.

Posted December 12, 2007

When I drove by this bridge the other day, it was closed. There was some corugated steel pipe next to it, so it looks like they might be replacing. I hope they dont this is a very nice bridge.
