Kyle, do you live near this bridge? I am curious if you have or could take a photo of the plaque visible in the photo, its located on the center span girder, far end. It would likely tell us who built the bridge.

This old bridge believe it or not must still be sound as I witness semi trucks 18 wheeler cross this bridge and average of 3 or 5 a week. I live next to this bridge . Unbelievable
