Bridge Documentation

This bridge no longer exists!

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

This historic bridge was demolished and replaced in 2011-2012!

This truss features five panels. It has unusual bolts that act as connections for the end diagonals at the end post / top chord connection. These bolts were used by the Wrought Iron Bridge Company of Canton Ohio, thus the presence of these on this bridge associates this bridge with that company. Another element of the bridge that checks out in comparison to documented Wrought Iron Bridge Company pony truss bridges is the use of lattice on the vertical members.
