Art,

To quote Julius Caesar, "Veni, vidi, vici Ohio!" :)

Seriously, Ohio/southern Michigan will always be my bridge heartland--I just decided to tackle some of the to-do list for a change and see what I could accomplish there. Definitely more work to do in the Buckeye State though....

Uh-oh, Paul has conquered Ohio and is on the march! :^)

Interesting pedestrian truss that appears to follow the Pratt configuration, yet has counter members in all panels, even the end ones.
