This bridge is a small pony truss bridge with riveted connections. It has had counter diagonals added to the truss web. These counter diagonals are eyebars that were most likely salvaged from another truss bridge that was
replaced. The added diagonal eyebar members were simply welded to the truss bridge.
It is very faint, but the end post of this bridge appears to bear the name "Jones and Laughlins" on the steel. The "s" at the end of Laughlins was dropped around 1905, so this may suggest the bridge is pre-1905, and thus
an early example of a rivet-connected truss bridge in Ohio.
