This is such a wonderful bridge in a very scenic setting. Massive stone abutments. The bridge appears to be unaltered since its original build.

NBI shows different build dates, 1895 and 1901, depending on the listing year.

The county and ODOT are currently requesting SHPO reevaluation of this bridge for National Register Eligibility. It currently is listed as Ineligible, and are requesting it be eligible.

I added the builder and Agent from the company, and the local name for the bridge (at the time it was built) per county records forwarded to me by Tom Barrett at ODOT.
