Decatur County Bridge No. 2 is a two span continuous reinforced concrete closed spandrel arch bridge constructed in 1935 and last repaired in 2002. The bridge carries Old US 421 over Clifty Creek.  The bridge has been determined eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places, but is not select for preservation, per the Programmatic Agreement Regarding Management and Preservation of Indiana's Historic Bridges.  The status of the bridge is currently "pending," which means that its future is currently unknown as the Section 106 historic review process is ongoing.

Depending on the outcome of the Section 106 consultation process, interested parties may be able to utilize the bridge.  Proposals will also be accepted for the salvage of elements that may be stored for future repair of similar historic bridges.
