This span's portals look identical to the Falknor Road Bridge in Miami County, Ohio
The builder is unknown on both, but is likely one of the larger firms that would have had agents in both states.
Here's some photos of Coal Shaft Road bridge. I'm not definite that this bridge is still standing. I haven't been that way in years. It's in a very secluded location - the land to the west is power company land and has restricted access, the road to the east has been abandoned since the bridge closed. I got to it by hiking to the Johnson Hill bridge and then hiking north about 3 miles. The power company has donated some of their land near the bridge to the state, so if there's any danger of a bridge coming in contact with a person, the bridge usually disappears.
In one photo you can see the Vermilion Power Station in the distance, which is how the bridge got it's other name.
