Long Description:
The bridge is located off old Highway 157 between Worthington and Coal City, Indiana. This bridge is also known as Owen #198 and the Eel River Bridge. The bench mark is located in the concrete to the right side of the North entrance of the bridge. It is in plain sight and easy to see. You can walk up to it but please use caution as there is a steep dropoff behind it. Also, there is foliage around the area so you need to hold it back to get a good picture.
