This a follow up the the first post in this thread. It was raining hard when JUNIOR650 and I arrived at this bridge (B1) on May 22nd of this year and I did not take photographs. Today my youngest daughter and I went back to capture some images to share. This is a Pratt through truss bridge (closed to all traffic in 2007) over the Mackinaw River in Tazewell county. Total length: 253.8 ft. with vertical clearance above deck: 18.1 ft. The deck is made of concrete and still in good shape. This bridge can be crossed on two wheels by going around the baracades.

location:N4026'21" , W8934'28"

Saw this old barn covered in Ivey......


Getting close.........








Looking to the west......


Most of the deck was covered in graffiti........


Here is a video clip I took last fall crossing the bridge on my XT600.......
