Located near Frankfort, Kentucky, this old bridge crossing Benson Creek was built in 1896. Bypassed by a new bridge in 1980, it has been abandoned to the elements and is slowly decaying alongside Devil's Hollow Road. Join us today as we check out this neat old structure.

|Rotted deck. I would not walk on this, at all.|
|Steel beam, riveted in place. The bridge steel is kinda ugly, but I've seen and driven on worse.|
|Old bridge, meet new bridge.|
|Massive stone abutments.|
|There is a small waterfall in the background. We were too rushed for time to check it out.|
|A departing shot of the bridge. I suspect this bridge will be lost to time, needlessly.|
