Otter Creek CR 239 Bridge
Posted September 23, 2011, by Chris Gonnerman (chris [at] gonnerman [dot] org)

Eric, the bridge in the picture you uploaded is not the Otter Creek CR 239 bridge; the one depicted is a 5 panel pin-connected Pratt truss, whereas the Otter Creek CR 239 bridge is a riveted Warren truss. I was just there today and will be uploading pictures later, so I'm certain of this.

If you can identify the correct location for the bridge in your picture, I'd be willing to attach the picture to it. It's a really pretty picture of a nice looking bridge. I've attached a proper JPEG image of your picture to this post.
