Heh, did that just happen today?

The two StreetViews are aimed at separate structures; the Lafayette Ave view appears to be aimed more at the Moundsville Bridge ( http://bridgehunter.com/wv/marshall/bh36177/ ).

As for THIS bridge, it looks more like it only ever served factory use, sort of like this one at the Flint Water Plant in Michigan: https://historicbridges.org/bridges/browser/?bridgebrowser=m...

This small truss certainly did not cross the Ohio River and the Ohio Edison plant appears to have been demolished.
