Nice to explore a canyon with unmarked roads and find this bridge at the bottom. The ride up on other side of the hill was awesome

This gem of an old covered bridge was on private property. I asked for and got permission from the people who own the land the access trail is on.

Blue Bridge.

So new, it isn't connected to the road yet.
It replaces one that was shorter. Meaning only one thing: the widening of the canal, that environmentalists have combatted for the last 40 years (sic) is considered a dun deal.

Called the Red Bridge locally, this medium-span truss carries a gravel-surfaced county road across the South Skunk River south of Reasoner in Fairview Township. Jasper County records indicate that the bridge was constructed at this location in 1892. Local bridge contractor H.S. Efnor held the county's annual bridge construction contract for that year, and he erected this bridge by September 1892 for $3,515.34. The bridge functioned as built until it was extensively damaged by flooding in 1947. The county then replaced one of the structure's original steel cylinder piers with concrete and added a pony truss approach span. The Red Bridge has functioned since in essentially unaltered condition. The Pratt and Warren truss configurations were both developed in the 1840s, but it was the Pratt that received the most widespread use in the late 19th century. The reasons for this probably relate to the versatility of the pin-connected Pratt for different span lengths and its easier erection using timer falseworks. Although they later superseded the Pratt when the state highway commission developed its standard bridge designs in 1913, Warren trusses were rarely built in the 19th century; only a few pin-connected examples of this structural type were ever constructed Iowa. All but a handful of these have subsequently been razed. The Red Bridge is thus technologically significant as an intact example of this exceedingly rare structural type. Although substantially altered by the addition of the pony truss approach span, the bridge is an important and uncommon remnant of early Iowa transportation [adapted from Fraser 1990].

One pic, two bridges. One newish highway bridge, one old railroad bridge, now converted to hiking and biking.

We were exploring an unpaved dirt road this afternoon and happened across this bridge.



The view from the bridge.

My loaded Goldwing crossing a temporary bridge for pedestrian and motorcycle traffic, where most motorcycles weight less than 300 lbs. I was crossing the bridge along with a bunch of Harley motorcycles and had to clear the bridge of all traffic in case the bridge fails. These touring bikes also took up the entire width of the bridge.

It was an experience feeling the bridge move under the load of the motorcycles as we cross.
