Bridge Documentation

This is one of several impressive multi-span through truss bridges in the downtown Columbus area. This bridge is technically two bridges side by side. The east bridge at the time of photo-documentation was rusted while the west bridge had black paint. The design details between these two bridges are extremely similar, but not identical. Subtle differences can be seen leading one to suspect that they were built at different times. Another unusual detail on both bridges is the northern spans are slightly shorter, estimated 100 foot spans, and have a Pratt truss configuration while the southern main spans have a Warren truss configuration. The bridge has Carnegie and Illinois brands on the rolled steel.
