    Lol. So just as I say it is not a steel arch-it is a steel arch. Thanks Nathan.

    Its most likely a "corrugated multi-plate steel arch bridge" these were common in the 1930s sometimes as part of Depression relief programs. http://historicbridges.org/bridges/browser/?bridgebrowser=mi...

    I'm looking at this bridge and it looks more like a disguised culvert to me. It is listed in the NBI as a steel culvert in 2004. Then after that the NBI lists it as a steel arch which it obviously is not. Any thoughts here? Is it a disguised culvert or a stone arch?
