No its not my term, its an industry (and also brand name) term for this type of structure, used by bridge companies and DOTs. I believe Minnesota DOT had a piece on this type of bridge as it relates to historic bridges.

Also, is corrugated multi plate a trademarked term? If historicbridges.org coined the term, I want to give proper credit if I create a category on here.

Nathan:

I wondered about that. I had forgotten to comment on this one given all the attention focused on the Gilliece Bridge in Iowa and the flooding in Missouri and surrounding states. Thanks for the link.

Date of construction and photos shown suggest this is not a stone arch bridge, but instead a corrugated metal plate type arch bridge. Such bridges were built during this period often with a stone facing. http://historicbridges.org/bridges/browser/?bridgebrowser=mi...
