Kilgore Bridge (1940)
Posted October 5, 2021, by Paul Plassman

Supposedly the photo in this link is of the Kilgore Bridge; however it seems to show a multi-span Parker truss bridge (and a partially collapsed one at that) rather than the riveted Pratt that was here from 1940 to 1992. I'm suspecting a mis-labeling--anybody else have any thoughts?
