Not absolutely certain. I think you will find that this bridge was part of the Western Maryland Railway, which crossed and recrossed the Potomac River many times between Hancock MD and Cumberland MD. The low grade (original) B&O line followed the West Virginia bank of the Potomac almost all the way to Cumberland.
