INDOT 45 ft. 28 ft. 1938 Reinforced Concrete Girder
Builder: Unknown Status: Pending
This single-span reinforced concrete girder structure was built in 1938. It is significant as a long example of an Indiana State Highway Commission (ISHC) designed reinforced concrete girder (45’) that was also built on a skew (15 degrees). The bridge is eligible for listing 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 this bridge is currently "pending," which means that its future is currently unknown as the Section 106 review process is on-going.
Depending on the outcome of the Section 106 consultation, interested parties may be able to utilize the bridge. INDOT is now accepting proposals for the rehabilitation and reuse, or the storage and future reuse of the bridge. Proposals will also be accepted for the salvage of elements that may be stored for future repair of similar historic bridges.
