I must have missed this project in the INDOT Bidding, but it seems this bridge has already been restored and moved to Rice Island in Corydon! I field visited the bridge in May 28, 2019 and there was no sign of construction so this project began sometime after that. https://www.corydondemocrat.com/2020/10/21/bridge-65-gets-ne...

Word has it from a reliable source that this will be the next bridge moved to the trail system near Corydon. Great news given that it continues to fade into the foliage in it's current location! I would love to see the nice cut stone abutments go with it!

This through truss has been closed to traffic but still stands next to its replacement. The new nondescript bridge was completed in 2002.
