CR 398 / Clear Creek Bridge
Posted December 30, 2019, by M C Toyer (mctoyer [at] hotmail [dot] com)

Chris - Ironic that I had visited 2 of the bridges (this and Blue River) you posted yesterday almost exactly 5 years ago.

They are 100 miles apart but I did not do both on the same day.

CR 398 / Clear Creek Bridge

When I visited this bridge 5 years ago Clear Creek was dry so was able to take several photos from below. If you look closely in the barrel views the trusses are slightly different in height and also length.

It is locally known as the Leo Bridge for the small community about 1 mile south.
