Looking at some of Melissa's pictures, it looks like this bridge has Phoenix Columns. Anyone else agree?

Nice adds Melissa!

Itís interesting that itís referred to as county designed. Itís a vertical endpost Whipple, which was normal for the period. Mead Ave. in PA is another example and there were many more.

I wonder who the actual builder was.
