Monon Trail - Fall Creek Parkway Overpass
Posted August 12, 2019, by Ed Hollowell (erhollowell [at] aol [dot] com)

This is a replacement, installed when Fall Creek Parkway was widened in the late 1970's or 1980's. The earlier bridge was the a plate girder pony truss with concrete facades. Does anyone know the date of replacement or details of the earlier bridge?
