This bridge is similar to the TR-48 Bridge also in the county. The builder of that bridge is listed as the Toledo Bridge Company, which was the successor to the Smith Bridge Company name. This bridge had the name listed in one of the older Ohio Historic Bridge Inventories as Smith Bridge Company. Both structures are very similar in appearance, so it seems like both these bridges were built around the time that Smith Bridge Company became the Toledo Bridge Company.
This bridge is a pin connected half-hip Pratt pony truss. The bridge is composed of five panels. The deck is wooden, and the structure is seated on concrete abutments. There is no v-lacing or lattice present on the bridge, which is typical for many Smith/Toledo Bridge Company pony truss bridges. In particular, the use of battens on the vertical members which are composed of paired channels is something that makes this bridge visually stick out as a Smith Bridge Company bridge. Original railings do not remain on the bridge, and modern Armco railings are present.
Since HistoricBridges.org visited the bridge in 2006, this bridge has been closed to traffic. Its future is uncertain. It would be nice for the bridge to be rehabilitated, or perhaps relocated and restored for pedestrian use elsewhere.
