BO - Stone Arch Bridge
Posted July 4, 2021, by John Marvig (marvigj27 [at] gmail [dot] com)

According to various online sources, the 17 span arch was designed 1853 and opened 1855. Since this is an approach to the truss bridge (http://bridgehunter.com/oh/butler/hamilton-rr/) and part of the same structure, should these two pages be merged into one entry?
