Bridge – Phillipsburg KS

Description

A bridge carrying a dirt county road over a creek south and east of Phillipsburg, Kansas was constructed by the Work Projects Administration (WPA) in 1940, as identified by a plaque on the bridge. The bridge is “not named, [over a creek] on Sante Fe or Thunder [two east-west roads], south and east of Phillipsburg.”

Based on the information and images available, Living New Deal thinks this may be a structure carrying Sante Fe Road over a creek bed just west of E 300 Road. However, more information is needed to confirm this.
