Joining Harrison and Crawford counties, Breeden's bridge is located near the town of Leavenworth, Indiana, crossing over the Blue River as it winds towards the Ohio River. Abandoned since the mid 1980s, its rusty skeleton provides an interesting backdrop to a popular swimming spot for locals.
|North portal of the bridge, as seen through the brush and weeds. This road was most recently used for logging purposes, and was abandoned because of its age and condition. The I-beams blocking the path keep out would-be accident victims.|
|When it was abandoned, the decking was removed from the structure. Brave (foolish?) locals still cross it by foot, something I would discourage.|

|During this photo shoot, a few locals showed up and decided to do some bridge diving. The water is fairly shallow, perhaps 8-9 feet in the middle, making this a dangerous idea. I stayed around to watch anyhow.|
