Blue Creek Bridge
Posted October 24, 2017, by K. Allen Ballard (speedeeprint [at] gmail [dot] com)

There are actually four 1922 vintage concrete T Beams on this former US36 (original highway) just west of Detroit, IL. I took pics of the first three, from west to east. I blew past the fourth (no pics) as it was more of a pair of concrete guard rails on either side of the roadway atop a culvert than that of being a bridge. I will add pics and entries of each as I get a chance this week.
