Bridge Documentation

This rare pin-connected Camelback truss bridge sits in an abandoned state. It crosses what appears to be the old original course of the Sangamon River. Today to the south is what maps show as the Sangamon River today. However, the county lines still follow this bypassed channel of the river. The water seen in the old river channel today appears to be mainly sourced from drains.
