Rich Street Bridge (Old)

Map 

Description 

Two western spans were added after the river channel was widened (after the 1913 flood). The bridge was supposed to be condemned in 1913, however this was the only structure that survived the 1913 flood in Columbus. It was essentially replaced by the Main Street bridge in 1937.
