Mike Page, are there plaques on both sides of this bridge? The photo you made does say 1916, but I was there yesterday and saw a plaque that said 1918. I am going back to take another look.

The plaque on this bridge says - 1918 Built By Fort Pitt Bridge Works Pittsburg Pa. The photo is not great but if you click to enlarge you can see that it says 1918.
