Marble Cliff Quarry - Scioto River Bridge
Posted July 10, 2021, by John Marvig (marvigj27 [at] gmail [dot] com)

Reportedly to become/already has become part of a trail:

However, I have found no master plans confirming this development happened. General overviews show it was the plan, at least in 2020 (the overview in the above link shows this). I am not sure if this was part of the Marble Quarry Cliffs development, or project "QT". Also, two mismatched spans suggest this is not at the original location. I would guess these are 1890s spans.
