Sugar Creek IN 32 Bridge
Posted March 18, 2015, by Tom Hoffman

This is the bridge that replaced the Yountsville Covered Bridge. It was a double barreled bridge built in 1854. Seeing pictures of the covered bridge shortly before the replacement, it looked to be in rough shape. The bridge book said that the covered bridge was rather high above the creek and the concrete arch under construction at the time was supposed to be higher. I wonder how high this current bridge is above the creek.

I kayak under this bridge all the time, and with a little bit of effort, you can put ashore here, and if you are brave enough, you can actually climb the concrete arch itself, all the way to its apex, where you are just a bare 4 feet below the roadway. Unforunately, this bridge, often referred to as "Yountsville Bridge" by local people, is a favorite graffiti sight for local teenagers, and as a result its aesthetic value has suffered, althought this is still a great bridge.
