The Johnsville Bridge carried US 42 over the Cedar Fork Mohican River in Johnsville, Ohio.
The Mount Gilead-Lexington Road (today's US 42) was first surveyed in 1812 between Delaware and Mansfield, but the route had been established years previous by other parties. Another survey was conducted in 1817 and the state road became a mail route in 1820.
A covered bridge was built over the river in Johnsville, and replaced with a Pratt through truss in 1900. The north approach was modified in 1924.
The Johnsville Bridge was bypassed in 1950-51 when US 42 was realigned. After years of abandonment, the Johnsville Bridge is scheduled for demolition in 2017.
