This bridge, built to replace a bridge washed away in a flood, has fared much
better than its predecessor. There are stone piers from a previous bridge,
presumably the one washed away, visible next to this bridge. The plaque on this
bridge says Marsh Bridge Company, but doesn't list a role (contractor or
engineer). The KHRI report states a contract was let to Marsh Engineering
Company of Topeka. Marsh Engineering Company typically refers to the designer
that held the Marsh arch patent, typically local contractors built the bridge.
Marsh Engineering Company hadn't been known as Marsh Bridge Company for many
years. Perhaps Marsh Bridge Company refers to a bridge contracting brand of the
Marsh Engineering Company?
