This rail bridge uses one abuttment from a prior wooden Aquaduct at that location. The Aquaduct was 8 spans and a total length of 480'. It was built as part of the Cincinnati & Whitewater Canal. Just curious if anyone knows anything more about that Aquaduct?

I was just down there last Sunday,7.19.08, and a sign posted on the right side of the approach to the bridge noted that the pedestrian walkway across the bridge was not safe to walk.
