West Point Road Bridge
Back in August I came across this bridge in northern Illinois on my way to ride the Trans-Wisconsin-Adv-Trail. This bridge is a through truss bridge over Plum River on West Point Road, 5.5 mi. northwest of Mt Carroll in Carroll county. The bridge was built in 1904 and is now closed to all traffic. It has a total length of 148.9 ft., a deck width of 11.5 ft. and a vertical clearance above deck of 13.5 ft.
