Horse Creek Bridge
Posted June 19, 2011, by Lou Merchen (wasta20 [at] gmail [dot] com)

This bridge still exists....it was moved from its original location 2 miles to the Newell (SD) municipal golf course and crosses a waterway there in March 2002. Had a wooden deck with only a 4-ton limit at time of removal. One of only 4 like this in the state of SD.
