This is a neat bridge. I used to enjoy seeing it as a child traveling down I-77 in my parents car. I was fortunate to be able to visit it in person in March of 2017. I will not add photos as it is well represented here. I don't know how much longer this bridge will be around. It is not in real good structural condition.
This is interesting information... the Historic Bridge inventory felt that (and I agree) that the details of this truss bridge suggest it was originally fabricated by the Wrought Iron Bridge Company in the 1890s. Yet the history of a 1913 flood washing out a bridge makes sense too, this flood decimated Ohio. So if both of these histories are correct, these spans must have been reused spans that were relocated here.
Thanks Sherman! Added to bridge page, crediting you.
I discovered today that this was locally known as Welty's Bridge. It replaced two earlier covered spans, the latter of which was destroyed in a flood in 1913: http://bridgestunnels.com/bridges/ohio/weltys-bridge/
