Bird Creek Bridge
Posted June 13, 2016, by Nathan Holth (webmaster [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

Field visited this bridge June 2016. Photos to eventually/someday end up on HistoricBridges.org. Key finding: Obviously the 1936 construction date is incorrect, but it might indicate when it was altered and likely relocated here too. The bridge has been widened from original roadway width. Evidence: Riveted splices at center of sway bracing and portal bracing. Another interesting observation... this bridge has exceedingly rare "Oliver" brand on the rolled angles. I've only ever seen this on a few bridges in the USA and Canada combined and its always on angles.
