Bridge Documentation

Although simple steel stringer bridges such as this one are not particularly historically significant or aesthetically interesting, this bridges does represent a railroad bridge design from the early 20th century, and as it is important to represent the structure type occasionally so that a clear picture of what early 20th century bridge design was like can be composed. Second, and more importantly, this is a bridge associated with a significant bridge company, the King Bridge Company of Cleveland Ohio. The King Bridge Company built such bridges as the 2nd Street Bridge in Michigan, and was among the leading metal truss bridge builders in the United States during the truss bridge era of the late 1800s. The King Bridge Company continued to build small girder and beam bridges for railroad companies such as this one in the early 20th century, and this bridge is representative of those activities, with a 1907 construction date. The bridge continues to serve railroad traffic today, although only pedestrians pass under the bridge today, since the restored 57th Street Bridge south of this bridge only serves pedestrian traffic.

Although this bridge was built by the King Bridge Company, the plate girder swing bridge a few feet south of this bridge, which was built in the same year, was instead built by the American Bridge Company.
