Bridge was cleaned and painted. Abutments were repointed. This single-span steel Parker truss was built in 1941. 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 the bridge is currently "pending," which means that its future is currently unknown as the Section 106 historic review process is on-going. Depending on the outcome of Section 106 consultation, interested parties may be able to acquire 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.
