This bench mark rivet is located approximately 2.6 miles south of Ceresco, Nebraska, and about 300 feet west of the Highway 77 southbound lanes. It is on the northeast corner of a concrete structure that was once a bridge for the C&NW Railroad's Fremont-Lincoln branch line. All traces of the railroad in this area are now gone except for this structure. The bench mark is listed in the NGS datasheets as MK0923.
