Lower Scioto Twin Railroad Bridges

Does anyone know when these bridges were built? One looks significantly older than the other (perhaps by 30-50 years?). I noticed in a panoramic view of Downtown Columbus taken of the 1913 flood they (or one) was still standing. Thanks!

You are correct.. maps show the bridge on the left is Conrail, the one on the right is CSX

The right of way and this bridge structure came into CSX possession via C&O RR which acquired the Hocking Valley and Toledo RR about 1930. It was never in the possession of the B&O RR
