Pike River Bridge

Photos 

The North Approach

This bridge is located in Petrifying Springs Park in Kenosha County. It carries the drive that makes a circle loop through the entire park.

Of course, this is Petrifying Springs Park. This bridge carries a parkway. So what does the sign say?

"No Parking."

Go figure.
