St Paul Bridge
Posted September 13, 2020, by Tom Hoffman

Wow! Such a massive stone arch bridge existed there. Looks like five spans with the middle being larger. This one was probably larger than some of the stone arch bridges on Jefferson Proving Grounds. For awhile I thought something said there was a Whipple truss at this location. Maybe it meant somewhere near. Thanks for adding this Tony.
