Description 

Ohio Historic Bridge Survey states the following, "The bridge is not at its original location. The heaviness of the construction, as well as holes in the floor beams indicating two lines of stringers spaced for railroad tracks, indicates it was originally designed to be a rail-carrying bridge."
