I'm happy to hear that they are not going to chop the width on the other bridge like they did on this one...leave them at their original size and that will not only allow for passing room for opposing pedestrian traffic, but also let folks stand at the trusses and enjoy the view!

This is the one that was moved here in 2010 Don:

Not sure what happened to the Firesteel Ck Bridge but it is definitely missing.

OK, so Nathan had already covered the Pease Creek Bridge being the one that will move.

I wish I could edit my own post to remove the redundant information.

Maybe we'll have that feature in the near future. Oh, well.

The bridge at 4346'32.37"N 9818'21.99"W, which fits the position coordinates of Firesteel Creek bridge on 249th street in Davison County and was present in 2007, but missing on 30 December 2010, is a likely candidate for being the one that exists now as The Island Development bridge.

Satellite imagery isn't great for South Dakota.

Just a guess, but Pease Creek bridge

Is probably the bridge being moved this summer 2013.

That's my $0.02

I discovered this bridge briefly mentioned here: http://www.mitchellrepublic.com/event/article/id/75843/group... and I am not sure exactly where it came from. This bridge is undoubtedly already listed on BridgeHunter, but I am not sure which one it is because I have no photos of either this bridge now, or the other bridges in this county. If someone figures out which bridge this is we can likely merge two pages. In the meantime, this page represents the current location for this bridge, visible as a pony truss in satellite imagery.
