ELK MOUNTAIN, Wyo. (AP) - A historic bridge is being torn down this fall following the Wyoming Department of Transportation’s determination that the structure was too dilapidated to be restored.

The Rawlins Daily Times reports (https://bit.ly/1cxJBg6) the Warren Truss bridge is one of three that Historian Clayton Fraser says were built in the state, its uncommon structure earning it a spot on the National Register of Historic Places.

The bridge was built in 1923 over the Medicine Bow River in Elk Mountain, located in southern Wyoming.

Yoder-based Dietzler Construction was awarded the transportation department’s $1.6 million contract for the project. The deadline for completion is in June 2016.
