Information and Findings From Ohio's Historic Bridge Inventory

Setting/Context

The stone arch bridge on the old National Road has been bypassed since the 1920s. It no longer carries traffic.

Physical Description

The stone arch bridge has an S-plan to its approach roadways and wingwalls. The arch has coursed ashlar arch barrel, spandrel walls, string course, and parapets. The arch ring has voussoirs and keystone.

Summary of Significance

The ca. 1828 stone arch bridge is a complete and handsome example of its type/design, typical of the original National Road arches. It is significant both for its technology and historic association with the National Road. The bridge was damaged as a result of flooding in 2005 and partially collapsed. It was rehabilitated as a FEMA project with no adverse effect to the Secretary of the Interiors Standards. The eligible recommendation of the prior assessment remains appropriate.

Justification

A well represented bridge type throughout the state for both bridges and culverts, stone arch bridges date from the mid 1830s and the building of the National Road through Belmont Co. Many are superbly proportioned and constructed by local contractors. They were used through World War I, particularly during the later years in park settings. More than 125 examples remain. This example has high significance based on its date of construction, detailing, and historic contexts) with the National Road.
