This bridge crosses Old Bean Creek which is so-named because the current Bean Creek is a manmade drain just north of this creek, where the CR-22 Bridge, a through truss, crosses. This bridge has a different rusting paint scheme than the through truss. This bridge has unusual v-laced railings present on it. The overwhelming majority of truss bridge railings are latticed, not v-laced. The bridge is seated on concrete abutments. A wood deck is barely remaining on the bridge. Vertical members are v-laced. Battens are present under the top chord and end post. The bridge is composed of four panels.
Information and Findings From Ohio's Historic Bridge Inventory
The bridge carries an abandoned road over a stream in a sparsely developed, rural setting.
The 1 span, pin-connected Pratt pony truss bridge is traditionally composed with built-up compression members and eyebar or rod tension members. The deck is gone.
Summary of Significance
According to ODOT's environmental review files, this abandoned bridge is former SFN 2634716, which was a surveyed non-select bridge in 1981. The 1919 pin-connected Pratt thru truss bridge is a very late example
of a common type/design and has no distinctive details or features. The builder is not documented by available county records. The not eligible recommendation of the prior inventory remains appropriate.
