Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railroad - Bean Creek Bridge
Posted October 8, 2021, by Paul Plassman

There appears to be some kind of crossover discrepancy between the build dates of this bridge and https://bridgehunter.com/mi/lenawee/bh94282/, which I believe was the successor to the covered bridge. Looks like I have to do some more digging....
