Bridge Documentation

This is a traditional example of a deck plate girder swing bridge. It includes fixed deck plate girder approach spans as well.

The superstructure of the bridge was fabricated by the Mt. Vernon Bridge Company of Mt. Vernon, Ohio. A. Bentley and Sons was the contractor for the bridge construction. A plaque on the bridge lists Jacksonville, Florida as the city for A. Bentley and Sons Company. However in reality this company was based in Toledo, Ohio. However, this plaque and a concentration of other bridges in this part of Florida built by A. Bentley and Sons Company suggests that the company also had a satellite location in Jacksonville.
