Iverson Crossing
Posted April 30, 2008, by Randy Brush

I was last trip at Iverson crossing ober Big Sioux River since 1970. I return it again summer 2004. It was closed to traffic after 2000. The wood floor was removed at camelback bridge. It was not safe. I have photo newspaper of Sioux Falls at home. Thank you for show photo.
