Huntsville Road Bridge
Posted August 17, 2017, by Nathan Holth (webmaster [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

James Cooper thought this bridge possibly was a bridge noted in records from 1920, but his wording suggested he was somewhat uncertain about this. My field visit of this bridge shows USS brands on upper and lower chords. USS did not start branding its own logo onto steel until ca. 1952-1953, using the names of constituent companies like Carnegie until that time. Therefore, I suggest this bridge dates to between 1952 and 1970. No later than 1970 due to the use of rivets.
