OH-49 Flatrock Creek Bridge


Bridge has little historical significance now but prior to 2012 it was worth noting as a long non-Michigan bridge using something very similar to Michigan's ubiquitous R4 rails.

Never mind....I figured out how to add the historical street view as an essay using the method that a couple of other contributors used for a bridge in Jackson County, Michigan. :)

Anybody know if there is any way to attach older street views to bridges rather than the most recent one? This bridge is nothing special in the current streetview but the view from 2008 is much more interesting as it shows the Michigan-like R4 rails that it originally had.
