Lakina Bridge
Posted August 2, 2010, by Nathan Holth (form3 [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

This bridge was hit by a truck and closed for repairs as a result. I only found one photos of the bridge on the DOT website, but from this one photo I see rivets and v-lacing. Thus, the 1981 construction date appears to be incorrect. I wonder if the other 1980s truss listed in the NBI is also older.
