South Elkhorn Creek Bridge
Posted May 26, 2013, by Clark Vance (cvance [at] dogmail [dot] com)

Looking at the photos it appears that the pony truss has been replaced with a slab and the trusses attached to the sides as decoration. This is certainly better than scrapping the truss and leaving nothing but a slab, however, should this be listed as replaced rather than open?
