Central Viaduct (Old)
Posted February 27, 2020, by Giorgio gerardi (Giorgio [dot] manno1 [at] gmail [dot] com)

My grand father came to America at age 18, in 1997 from Friuli Italy. No one is sure but legend has it he built a bridge in cleaveland. Ohio.when a date of a bridge is shown is that the date it opened or date it was started? We are trying to gather any and all information on bridges uilt between 1907 and until the day he returned back to Italy to serve in WW1. Thanks for all help. I want to try finding possible bridges so I can take my 84 year old father as a bucket list.
