The collapsed Crooked Creek Bridge - Madison, Indiana

The abandoned bridge that crosses Crooked Creek in Madison used to be a part of State Route 56 until the present Clifty Hollow Road replaced the route.  The bridge is accessible by following an unmarked path at the bottom of the Madison Heritage Trail.  Parking is available at the bottom of the trail at the end of McIntire Street, so don't be like me and park at the other end of the Heritage Trail unless you're down for a good walk all the way up hill back to the car.

The approach to the bridge is completely gone.  Climbing up wasn't the easiest thing in the world.

It looks like the bridge was filled with dirt after the concrete shell was created.

Bonus picture:
It looks like some locals have built some of their own BMX trails near the old bridge.  Always cool to see someone put a space no one is really using to good use.  Reminds me of a place where I would hang out as a kid.
