The next bridge we came to was the riveted, 4-panel Pratt bedstead pony truss bridge over Flat Branch on TR 264, 4 mi. southeast of Stonington in in Christian county. This bridge has a total length: 100.0 ft. and a deck width: 13.1 ft. There was a tremendous amount of debris washed up to the bridge from recent flooding. This must be removed or the bridge risks being lost in another flood.

Location: N3936'33" , W8907'08"













more to come.......
