Facts 

Overview
Through truss bridge temporarily sitting next to 1000th Street, just north of the Pike County line
Location
Fall Creek, Adams County, Illinois
Status
temporarily propped up on wheels and concrete blocks on private property
Future prospects
Around the time I-36/72/136/172 was being built in the early 1980's, I believe this bridge was removed from it's location and moved by a local landowner in order to save it. It has sat here since.
Design
Pin-connected, 6-panel Pratt through truss
Also called
Munger Bridge

if he saved it and has future intentions than it doesn't need an abandoned status

Oh good! I'm glad you saved it. Any updates?

I saved that bridge from being scrapped and intend to place it over a creek on an adjacent farm.
