Cagles Mill Lake Bridge

From the road level, a nondescript Indiana state highway crosses over a narrow section of Cagles Mill Lake. I had driven over this bridge maybe a dozen times in the past year or so and had never thought much about it. However, a walk down a sandy path through the briers and over the rocks takes you down to the river level where the structure of the bridge is most visible. It is not the normal plain bridge we are so used to seeing. The design is open-spandrel concrete arch with the largest span going 150 feet. The bridge opened to traffic in 1951 followed by a 1982 rehabilitation. Other than a handful of graffiti scribbles the design fits in nicely with the surroundings – all you have to do is find the right spot to see it. Sometimes the artwork is right under your feet (or your vehicle…)
