Rothrock Mill Bridge Being Readied For A New Home
A newly painted and restored Rothrock Mill Bridge will soon be the feature attraction on a trail near Corydon. The 1915 Parker Truss span had sat patiently near it's replacement since 2005 before being dismantled and moved to the Hayswood Nature Preserve. At it's new home it will span Indian Creek on the Indian Creek Nature Trail. The bridge appears to be ready except for a deck which will likely be installed after the span is placed on it's new abutments.
Thanks to Jonathan Parrish for supplying this photo of the bridge awaiting placement on a new foundation being built in the background.
