This historic bridge was demolished and replaced in 2010!

This bridge had just received a new deck in 2006 when it was documented by HistoricBridges.org. The pile of old wood was next to the bridge. The bridge was a small three panel half-hip pony truss. A couple alterations were present on the structure, including the addition of wire cable diagonal members that replaced or functioned alongside the center diagonals on the western truss. There was also some welding done to the top chord on this western truss which appeared to be the result of a sample test coupon being removed from the bridge. The bridge was seated on stone abutments. There was v-lacing present on the verticals. Channel railing was present on the bridge.

The deck replacement in 2006 might have led some to believe that Iroquois County actually cared about this and other historic bridges in the county. Nothing could be further from the truth. The bridge was demolished and replaced in 2010, becoming the latest in a historic truss bridge slaughter that started a few years before HistoricBridges.org visited the county in 2006, and as of 2013 has continued relentlessly. A county that once had one of the largest and most impressive collection of historic metal truss bridges in Illinois is reducing its collection to nearly nothing.
