Description 

This double-decker Pratt Through Truss was built in 1903, and refurbished with connecting eye-bars in 1930 by the American Bridge Company. This bridge is significant for its double-decker design, carrying Mahoning Avenue on top, and Tod Avenue below. This bridge was replaced sometime in 1990 as google earth reflects a road change based on primitive satellite images. According to NBI, the new bridge was built in 1997
