That road(1000S) runs straight through from one side of the county to the other, so they may have done it to appease the farmers. Hopefully that will help the other two bridges....I know #59 is status pending on the INDOT site. I would like to find out if they dismantled #60 for possible reuse. I know at one time they were talking about moving the Vera Cruz bridge into Bluffton. One can hope.
Yeah, it's a shame to find these old bridges missing. I suspected this bridge had been replaced even before my visit, but hoped maybe it had been bypassed. Unfortunately it wasnít.
I see from your postings that Delaware County has some nice old bridges, possibly endangered as well. Looks like Iím going to have to check them out before itís too late.
Sad to see they replaced this one. For years, going to my Grandparent's house in Warren, I would visit these 3 bridges. 3 different truss types on 3 consecutive roads was pretty cool.........but no more. Had I have gotten an earlier start to Delaware County on Saturday, I was planning on going up that way. Good to see we've got each others backs!
This bridge no longer exits. Replaced with modern concrete structure.
