NKP - Rocky River Bridge
Posted April 26, 2022, by Paul Plassman

The book in this link mentions a 673' long, 88' high Bollman truss that was built at this site in 1882. Still trying to figure out whether the Bollman preceded the Whipple or whether the writers were referring to this bridge and made a mistake in the truss type.
