View Historical Article About This Bridge

This bridge is an impressive, large cantilever bridge. It is one of several railroad cantilever bridges along this stretch of the Ohio River. Each example is unique in its own way.

One report suggested that the bridge was built in 1924. However a historical article from 1917 shows the bridge nearly completed, so it appears that the 1924 date is wrong.
