Wagner Ford Road Bridge
Posted November 8, 2014, by Bob Heffner (robert [dot] heffner [at] sbcglobal [dot] net)

This bridge was open to traffic for a time after it was built, until the current alignment was completed. There were traffic lights at each end to control the flow of traffic. I believe this bridge is now used by City of Dayton employees to access the water well fields on the other side. This bridge replaced a Pennsylvania through truss that was identical to the Rip Rap Road bridge to the north.
