Haw Creek Southbound US31 Bridge
Posted September 15, 2020, by Tom Hoffman

This bridge was actually for both ways on US 31. I remember always seeing it and it was lost before I was old enough to drive. The southbound lane was always backed up due to no turn lanes at the light to 25th street. Another bridge that could have been left for one way traffic. Now Columbus has lost some history and architecture looks with all the many Parker trusses gone.
