Bunker Hill Road Bridge
Posted July 2, 2019, by Nathan Holth (webmaster [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

I am not sure if there was two truss bridges here, but I still see one pony truss bridge on this road so Im not sure why its listed as lost... and as of right now its still standing, but it won't be for long, as posted on county website:

Bids for the removal of an 80' x 30' pony truss bridge and installation of three 84" x 60' CMP on Bunker Hill Road over Beers Creek in Wyoming Township will be received by the Jones County Board of Supervisors at the County Courthouse in Anamosa, Iowa until 9:30 a.m. on the 2nd day of July, 2019.
