Cedar Creek Bridge Roadgeek Note
Posted October 5, 2019, by Aaron Hall (ahall [at] vitaphone [dot] net)

When this bridge was built in 1928, it carried K-24, which was re-designated K-16 when US 24 was extended into Kansas. In the 1960s or 1970s, that stretch of K-16 was short-cut, bypassing the bridge.
