Its Wisconsin; it wouldn't surprise me that its gone.

Seems this one is gone. It didn't have latitude and longitude, so I looked for where Elk Creek and CR 88 crossed. GoogleEarth image for 1998 shows a truss there. NBI has a prestressed stringer built in 2004 at that location. Seems I'm too late to get photos.
