Visited this bridge and I will state that it is the MOST remote, out of the way bridge I have yet viewed. Seriously, you can't get there from here. Big Bayou in Gibson Co and also a lulu.

This historic through truss is still standing but closed to traffic. It is absolutely in the middle of nowhere on Long Pond (a former alignment of the White River). The bridge has been bypassed directly north with a dirt road over a culvert.
