Eel River Bridge

We crossed this truss bridge on State Road 42 over the Eel River in Clay County, Indiana. The bridge design is Riveted, 10-panel Parker Through Truss and it opened to traffic in 1937. Open farm land surrounds most of the area around the bridge but trees and thickets stand on both sides of the Eel River where it passes under the bridge. Newer simpler bridge designs have replaced many of these old bridges. Maybe the more aesthetically pleasing designs will come back into style again one of these days.

  1. Hi Dennis,
    I know Lori. I love your bridge photo. I travel often and try to take bridges, roads, paths and use them in my blog posts. I’ve blogged about photography often.
