In my Good Fences post of last week searching for the Mormon Pioneer Trail (see here)
I came by this poor old fence that desperately wanted to be on Good Fences.
This fence was near the Sutherland State Aid Arched Bridge. There were 77 or so state aid structures built throughout the state of Nebraska between 1912 and 1936 and only 17 remain in use.
Of the 17 multiple arch bridges built during the state aid program all but the Sutherland Bridge have been destroyed or substantially altered. The Sutherland Bridge is also the best example in the state of the concrete arch construction.
The bridge spans the North Platte River and it was very peaceful there that day.

At the look of it mostly forgotten tracks inland. It gives a nice look at the more rural parts of your country.
I like the arch bridge and river scenery! It would be if they could fix them, rather than destroy them! Great shots, enjoy your day!
Cool old fence and love teh bridge!
The fence could use a little help.
Sadly the concrete in the bridges built more than 60 yeas ago is beginning to fail. We'll be using fewer and fewer of these bridges.
I love the old fences, bridges, and roads. There is such history there.
i love that bridge - too cool! always amazed at their designs. ( :
what a neat leaning fence. lots of wind or just over time that caused that?
the asphalt in front of that bridge area is looking pretty sad! LOVE the old rickety fence! looks like texas!
Nice fence, has character. Cool bridge and river too.
I love the arched bridge and the tired old fence.
Beautiful photographs, and definitely great fences!
Nothing better than a tired old fence, still hanging around. Great photos all of them.
Just a comment on a photo in your sidebar, I like that blossom in No name dry lake. Stunning!
Awww, it does, indeed, look tired.
(pretty much how I looked this morning. :)
Poor sad fence!
I can hear the fence asking for a picture but did you say only GOOD fences are allowed?
That fence did belong on Good Fences...and nice that you included that bridge. Loved seeing its arches.
love that last black and white!
The bridge is very nice with it's pretty arches. The old fence sure could use some fixing up.
A tired old fence, for sure. It's a great shot though. And, I really like the bridge.
The B&W photo of the bridge over the Platte river is very nice, John.
Very nice. I can see why you chose them.
Nice rural shots.
Great shots of both the bridge and the fencing.
Love the wobbly fence and the bridge with the arches is really lovely
