CN - Yellow River Bridge (Gilman)
Posted October 13, 2017, by Michael Tidrick (mrtidrick [at] gmail [dot] com)

This bridge is easily accessible with a street crossing on the north bank and public park on the south bank. Please use caution as rail traffic is frequent and they don't slow down much going through town.

On a side note... not too far to the east of this bridge is a 100+ year old suspended cable "swinging" footbridge that connects Gilman Public Park on the south bank of the Yellow River to South Riverside Drive on the north bank. Sadly I did not know its significance or I would have photographed it too.
