This appears to be the same bridge.

You wouldn't have gone very far, only 3 of the original 5 spans are left.

Yeah, that's it. I grew up near here and remember driving across it before the new bridge was built. See how the last span is still kind of silver and not as rusty as the rest? That's because it fell in back in the 60's and was replaced. I was just a kid but remember it being big news here. A truck pulling a trailer with a dozer on it was too heavy and caused it to collapse. The driver only received minor injuries.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

I rode across it on a '75 Yamaha XS650 back in the eighties. Cool experience.

Since I lived in the UP for 5 years back then I also drove across it many times in a car. Snowing with gusty winds was also an experience.
