Information and Findings From Ohio's Historic Bridge Inventory

Setting/Context

The bridge carries a 1 lane road over a stream in a wooded rural setting.

Physical Description

The 1 span, 108'-long, pin-connected Pratt thru truss bridge is traditionally composed of built-up compression members and eyebar tension members. It has lattice portals.

Integrity

Rehabilitated in 2007. Truss was relocated off-site to US Bridge to be repaired in-kind and painted, then returned to site.

Summary of Significance

The 1883 Wrought Iron Bridge Co. pin-connected Pratt thru truss bridge was rehabilitated in 2007. The rehabilitation maintained the integrity of design. The bridge was select in the prior inventory and NR listed in 1990.

Justification

The bridge is one of over 150 extant pin-connected truss bridges dating from 1874 for pony trusses and 1876 for thru trusses. Twenty six predate 1888 and represent the era of experimentation that evolved into standardized designs by about 1888. This example has a high level of significance based on its early date of construction and association with a prominent builder.
