Definitely A FASCINATING bridge. Used by the Taylor Iron and Steel Company for many years, reopened after 50 years, as part of the Greenway in 2010. Restored by Union Forge Heritage Association, with materials donated by Custom Alloy and Fox Lumber.
Carnegie may have fabricated the steel for this bridge. However, the builder I think may be American Bridge Co. A 1908 span in Maine has a very similar stylistic appearance. http://www.historicbridges.org/bridges/browser/?bridgebrowse...
If this bridge is as old as the one in Maine, it would be highly significant as an early poly warren.
