Bridge Documentation

View Archived National Bridge Inventory Report - Has Additional Details and Evaluation

This is an impressive and attractive example of a state-designed highway truss bridge. It retains good historic integrity. It supposedly is listed as a Select Bridge under the Indiana Historic Bridge Management Plan, which would make it one of the few state-designed bridges with the beautiful arched portal and sway bracing design to be designated for preservation.
