This small steel stringer bridge is noted for stone abutments, and simple railings that are fastened together by rivets. Its superstructure and railings appear to be unaltered from their original construction. This bridge is near the Brower Road truss bridge, and may have been built at the same time and by the same company, but this is just speculation.
Information and Findings From Ohio's Historic Bridge Inventory
The bridge carries a 2 lane road over a stream in a rural setting with scattered 20th century residences.
The skewed, 1-span, 31'-long steel stringer bridge has riveted angle railings, concrete deck, channel fascia beams, I beam interior lines of beams, transverse angle bracing attached by clips to the bottom flanges of the beams, and is supported on one stone abutment and one concrete abutment.
Summary of Significance
The rolled steel stringer bridge built ca. 1920 is an undistinguished example of the state's most common pre-1961 bridge type. Although complete, the county retains no records that can substantiate the date or
builder, thus limiting the bridge's significance as a prototypical example. There are more than 3,000 examples dating from about 1900 to 1960. The bridge is not historically significant for its technology or context. More
distinguished examples better represent the steel stringer bridge type's contributions to the development of the state's road systems.
