Indiana - Illinois - Running the Wabash Cannonball

Thanks to my crack researcher, I found an old, one-lane 2-section bridge - the Wabash Cannonball Toll Bridge from St. Francisville, IL to Indiana, over the Wabash River. That means that traffic can only go one direction at a time. Basically, that means that (people in) cars look to see if another car is on the bridge & if not, it can go. As a runner, it means run as fast as you can because you never know when another car will enter and your "right" to the bridge is tenuous anyway. The bridge is probably safe enough but some of the boards bounce up when weight goes on one end. The trusses in the middle portion of the single lane are not covered and are a broken ankle or at least a nasty fall waiting for those that lose focus - but remember to focus on getting across the bridge as fast as possible before there is oncoming traffic or even traffic flowing the same direction.
Watch that left foot - a few more inches to the middle would be dangerous!
Here is someone's video of the bridge - set to Johnny Cash's famous song about the train - The Wabash Cannonball
