Highway 25 Bridge
Posted April 28, 2015, by Charles Bowden (charliesmail101 [at] gmail [dot] com)

The first time i saw this bridge was in 1980 and it was very unique as that was first time i had saw a one lane through truss bridge with a paved floor. Memory says the state kept the brige painted silver. When i lived further north i crossed this a lot going to Conway, but not so much when i moved into Conway. Reason being is you never went this stretch of hwy. going north unless you were going to town of Wooster or up on the Cadron so i dont even remember the year it was replaced. The site and the new bridge is 1 mile north of Lake Beaverfork and the present day city limits of Conway.
