Miami & Erie Canal Bridge
Posted May 16, 2018, by Charles W McDowell (cwire44 [at] att [dot] net)

This bridge is not on the Germantown Rd! It crossed the Miami & Erie canal just north of the downtown area at today's junction of Verity Parkway (former canal) with Tytus Ave to the northeast and Main st to the southwest. In addition to the highway it also carried the electric traction line over the canal.
