Tyler Road Bridge

The location is not where the red pointer is but is SE of that point where it crosses the railroad tracks. The date is stamped underneath the bridge in the concrete on the north end. Just to the west of the bridge was my dad's property. The remains of his barn he built about 1980 is still there. The square brush area was where he was going to build a house but never did. The railroad trench was dug out around 1935 to reroute the tracks. They were once farther north.
