Harrison Road Bridge

The temporary bridge over the Great Miami River at Harrison Avenue *is* the structure that collapsed during a high water stage when struck by a large log/tree floating down the river. Two people were killed.

Yes, this may have been the bridge at the edge of Miamitown on what used to be US 52. It may have been bigger and longer than the Blue Rock Bridge. One of the three Pennsylvania through trusses over the Great Miami should have been saved. The Harrison Road Bridge was replaced like way back in 1989. This may have also been the site where the part of the temporary bridge was washed out and two people were killed when their car plunged in the rushing water.
