Description 

This bridge carried US 29 on an old alignment. The lastest date this bridge shows is 1945, though I feel like it may have been removed earlier. The piers are still intact and I feel like this was certainly a truss bridge, probably a through truss.

NBI says replacement bridge was built 1938.

Here's what I believe to be a picture of this bridge taken in 1937. I believe it was bypassed and removed at this time when the SH29 rerouted to it's current day location and the new bridge was built.
