Aban/CSX/L&N/Monon Bridge over Tippecanoe River at Monticello, IN

(Bridge Hunter; no Historic Bridges; see below for satellite)

Built ca. 1895, demolished ca. 1986. [Bridge Hunter]

Two photos from the Indiana State Department of Natural Resource, Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology via Bridge Hunter. The water level on the piers looks like these photos were taken after the Oakdale Dam was built.

The right-of-way was still intact in 1999, but the bridge was gone.
