One of two classic concrete rainbow arches on original alignments of highway OH 7 in Ashtabula County, Ohio. This one was rehabilitated very well in about 1999, and should now last for many decades to come.
Previous reports that this bridge was closed, likely arose because there are two very similar rainbow arch bridges on previous alignments of OH-7 in Conneaut. The bridge that is closed is the other one, listed in Related Bridges below. This bridge is open to traffic as of August 2022.
