It was built in 1885 through Catlettsburg, Kentucky.
US 60 used to cross the Big Sandy on a five span truss not too far down from this rail span. The stringer span in the background is the replacement. It was a bumpy bridge that used to take me to Camden Park, an amusement park located toward Huntington on 60. I have a newspaper clippings of the bridge being replaced including a picture of the truss bridge getting imploded.
