Sugar Creek Bridge

I'm leaning towards Buckeye Bridge Works on this one. WIBCo used heavier double-laced verticals on the two examples of their non-tubular Bowstrings that I've seen. They also didn't run their rods through the top cover plate like BBW did. Obviously, there's a very small sample pool to go by on either.

Great new pic!

My guess is Wrought Iron Bridge Co., primarily based on the arch design.
