Lynn Line Road Bridge

Photos 

FOUND!

This elusive bridge has been hiding from me for two years. One has to want to go to this bridge as it is about as far removed from anything as it can be and still be located in Wood County.

This bridge reminds me of the Prairie River Bridge in Langlade County, also built in 1906, although that one appears more delicate than this one. Both are closed and remain well hidden. The Lynn Line Bridge does appear to be a haven for teenage activities of several kinds.
