This small bridge once served a farmland access drive, but
today its deck is long gone, and the south abutment is tipping forward into the
drain. The truss bridge has remained stationary, while the abutment moved
forward. As a result, the feet of the bridge are suspended in the air, and
the deck stringers are actually laying on the abutment now.
Although the builder is unconfirmed, the style of the plaque
suggests that, like some of the Huron County truss bridges, this bridge was
associated with Massillon Bridge Company and/or Agents Wynkoop and McGormley.
Cambria mill marks are present on the bridge. There is
unusual connection details with lateral bracing under the deck. Lattice railings
remain on the bridge. V-lacing is present on the verticals.
