View Archived National Bridge Inventory Report - Has Additional Details and Evaluation

This bridge is a warren pony truss with riveted connections. It retains original lattice railings. The bridge is seated on concrete abutments. The bridge has not been painted recently, but is otherwise in good structural condition, with only the deck being in poor shape. The bridge has hazard signs mounted on the end posts of the bridge. To be more specific, one of the hazard signs is mounted to the builder plaque of this bridge, which itself is mounted to the end post. The steel bar to hold the sign was welded right onto the plaque. It is unclear why it was out of the question to mount the sign four inches higher where it would not have required defacing the bridge's plaque.

Ohio DNR is interested in rescuing this historic bridge from its date with the scrap yard, and moving it to Hueston Woods State Park. The bridge is currently (December 2014) in storage while funding and a design engineer are lined up.
