I headed to another old iron bridge in the center of the county. Here are a few pics.

This is a great old bridge. I found it on my "other" bike while riding with some Vietnam vets from Chicago to St. Louis.
Now that I found this thread, I'll have to take pictures of old bridges in central IL while on my "motorized bike".


Im not sure if your aware of this, but there is another through truss bridge very similar to this one and a small pony truss bridge, about 5 miles west of this one. Location: N40 13'21.4" W89 24'11.8" There are pictures of them in post #3 of this thread.
