This is the BOLIVIA ROAD BRIDGE. It crosses the Sangamon river and connects Sangamon and Christian counties. I do find it hard to believe "Abe Lincoln crossed that very bridge
" as the sheriff told you.The bridge was constructed in 1901, Abe Lincoln was assassinated in 1865 (36 years before the bridge came to be).
