Meldahl Dam Bridge
Posted February 6, 2008, by Satolli Glassmeyer (info [at] scenicroadrallies [dot] com)

Clermont County Historical Society says this bridge carried traffic to a school and two houses near the Ohio River. The Corps of Engineers bought the land in the late 1950's to build Meldahl Dam. The houses were used as offices for the Engineers and then eventually torn down. The bridge can be found 200 yards west of the Meldahl Dam entrance and 50 yards south of U.S. Route 52.
