Fairview-Snodgrass Road Bridge installed at City of Piqua Park
Posted December 16, 2011, by Tom Barrett (tom [dot] barrett [at] dot [dot] state [dot] oh [dot] us)

The bridge is now preserved, in a beautiful setting, within the Piqua Parks bikeway system. ODOT's District 7 Office, Miami County, and City of Piqua partnered to save this historic structure, one of very few examples left in this region of the state, of a once very common type of "work horse" bridge.

From the ODOT Bridge reuse site:

Preserved!

Miami County, Fairview-Snodgrass (Township Route 19) over Spring Creek. This bridge was scheduled for replacement in 2010. It is now being relocated to the City of Piqua for reuse on a bikeway. Thanks to Doug Christian P.E., P.S., the Miami County Engineer and the City of Piqua for their efforts in finding a way to preserve this structure.
