||CR-52 Over Unnamed Drain||Rural: Elkhart County, Indiana||Metal Stringer (Multi-Beam), Fixed||By Builder/Contractor: Unknown|
This small bridge is not even big enough to be called a bridge by the government as it is under 20 feet, yet with steel stringers and interesting pole railings, and a couple engraved lines on the abutments for accent, this structure is built like a bridge. It even features a concrete veneer on the outer edge to hide the steel stringer and create a uniform appearance. If replaced today, a small to medium sized culvert would likely be all that would placed here. Bridges like this open a window into a period where an attention to detail was given with even the smallest of bridges.
