Bridge Documentation

This is the only known surviving example of a patented cantilever bedstead truss bridge in Indiana. The design was patented by the Indiana Bridge Company. This bridge was originally part of a county highway but it became a park road in 1960 when Chain O Lakes Park was created. The bridge has lost its original pipe railings that were on top of the top chord. To reach this bridge you must enter the park from CR-75 South and pass the toll booth, then turn right, follow the road, taking a left at the only fork in the road, then parking where the road makes a 90 degree turn to the right (west). From this location you can walk directly on a trail south to the bridge.

Visit the CR-2325 Bridge page to learn more about this rare bridge type.
