Bridge Documentation

View Archived National Bridge Inventory Report - Has Additional Details and Evaluation

Built in 1893, this bridge is an example of one of the Wrought Iron Bridge Company's later bridge designs. This later design is most readily recognized by its use of an a-frame portal bracing, something the company never used in its earlier years. Not many examples of these later bridges survive today. This bridge was sensitively rehabilitated for continued vehicular use under the design of J. A. Barker Engineering.

Statement of Significance

This quite unadorned bridge, built by a prolific Ohio firm, appears to retain its original members.

Architectural Description

The Wrought Iron Bridge Company of Canton, Ohio, fabricated this single-span, pin-connected Pratt through truss which is seated upon cut stone (reinforced with concrete) abutments and wingwalls. Intermediate verticals of laced channels divide the 86' span into most of its five panels. Eyebars provide the diagonals: pairs stretch toward center span from the top panel point to the bottom of the 2nd and 4th panels; cylindrical eyebars with turnbuckles cross the center panel. U-bolted to the lower pins, the floor beams carry a metal grid deck with its 15'8" roadway and 15' of vertical clearance.

Bridge Considered Historic By Survey: Yes
