Big 4 Flatrock River

Warren Deck Truss in the rear was from a former trolley line that ran from Shelbyville to Greensburg. Possibly the Indianapolis and Cincinnati Traction Company. That bridge is no longer standing.

I looked on the map of this bridge and saw the piers for the trolley bridge that was mentioned in the picture.I didn't see it listed on Bridgehunter.When was that bridge removed?
