Agreed Robert! This one has no business being on this site!

I am hoping to visit Indiana someday, due to the unrivaled collection of historic bridges there. I will probably bypass this one though...

Would it be possible to post some of these listings over on www.uglybridges.com. Despite the name, ugly bridges is a good website for those who like bridges in general, namely modern concrete overpasses. You can also cross list historic bridges between bridgehunter and ugly bridges. Ugly bridges is actually a good resource that is being underutilized.

That way, we can reserve Bridgehunter for bridges that are historic and notable (including modern bridges that are notable such as cable stayed, network arches, quality replicas, etc).
