View Information About HSR Ratings
This impressive structure is a fairly early example of Warren riveted through truss technology. Typical of the Oregonia Bridge Company, this bridge features decorations and builder plaques... the type of features that were more common on pre-1900 truss bridges. The bridge retains attractive lattice railings behind modern Armco guardrails. Sway and portal bracing feature a lattice design, while nearly all other elements of the bridge include a narrow v-lacing design in their built-up design.
Information and Findings From Ohio's Historic Bridge Inventory
The bridge carries a 1 lane road over a stream in a sparsely developed, rural setting.
The 2-span, 258'-long, rivet-connected Warren thru truss bridge is traditionally composed of built-up members. It has lattice portal bracing with brackets with circular cut-outs and nameplate. There are also lattice railings with modern beam guide rails placed to their roadway faces. The bridge is supported on a concrete substructure.
Summary of Significance
There have been no significant changes to the bridge's status since the prior inventory. It is a complete example of a truss type/design that became popular after 1900 with improvements in pneumatic field
riveting equipment. The eligible recommendation remains appropriate.
The bridge is one of over 40 extant riveted thru truss bridges of all designs built between 1904 and 1959. This example is representative of the population and has moderate significance. There are also many riveted thru truss bridges servicing the many rail lines in the state.
