Observant visitors to this bridge will notice the west plaque shows Canton Bridge Co. while the eastern plaque shows Central Concrete Construction Co. These two companies as I understand were separate, but they seem to have worked together often. I assume one fabricated and the other erected.

Doncha just have to love that unusual Mfg/Builder plaque? I bet there's a lost story in there somewhere.
