This traditionally composed truss bridge was built by a prominent Ohio bridge builder. The bridge was bypassed by a modern bridge at which time the county agreed to maintain the historic bridge until a new location to restore the bridge could be found. Unfortunately it seems a new home has never been found and the bridge remains to this day in place.
Information and Findings From Ohio's Historic Bridge Inventory
The bridge is on a by-passed section of highway and is closed to traffic. It has been bypassed since 1999.
The 1 span, 92'-long, rivet-connected Warren pony truss bridge has polygonal upper chord and verticals with outriggers. The members are built-up. It is finished with lattice railings. There are no distinctive or innovative details.
Summary of Significance
The bridge has been bypassed and closed to traffic.
There have been no significant alterations. It is a complete but later
example of its type/design. It is an eligible bridge from the prior
inventory, but there is nothing that would suggest that it is
historically or technologically significant based on its date of
construction. It is representative of what by 1925 was a standardized
design that is characteristic of the period. The bridge is not
historically or technologically significant.
