I and M Canal Bridge

     This is a canal walkway over the I and M Canal in rural Grundy County.   The builder is unknown.  It is a metal 5 panel rivet–connected Pratt truss, fixed.  The bridge sits in its original location.  It is now used for non motorized uses.  

     The trusses are very light weighted.  There are stone abutments.  The guard rails are very ugly and probably not original.
