Wabash - Engleholm Creek Bridge
Wabash Railroad Bridge #24
BH Photo #308120
From the July 15, 1905 edition of Railway & Engineering Review: "Structure contains 402 cu. yds. of concrete at $8.25 per cu. yd.; total cost (including 238 yds. of excavation) was $4735.57."
This culvert was undoubtedly constructed in order to handle the increased traffic due to the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair, held in Forest Park, just south of this location.
This bridge replaced a pile trestle bridge, which was constructed here in the year 1884, according to an addendum to the Wabash B&B book of 1902.
