Overview Looking Northeast

1976? I don't think so, Tim. 1876? Hardly. The build date is obviously a typo, my guess would be that the seven should be a 2 or a 3. 1926? 1936? More likely than 1976!

Barrel Shot Looking East

The bridge is one lane and signed. (I got chased off of it by a John Deere tractor.) There is no manufacturer's plaque nor holes where one used to be located.
