I love that these bridges are getting saved, but black, can't we find another color here in the hoosier state.

This is most likely the former Whetstine Road Bridge.

Mr. Vuckson did a great job in my opinion! Not the most scenic area though.

spoke with Richard Vuckson of Vuckson Excavating and he told me that he was the one who relocated this bridge from Morgan County, IN. He told me that it was originally located close to Morgantown (I think?). Anyway, if anyone can give more info about this bridge it would be good.
