Yes this bridge has been rehabbed. In the early 80's I believe it had a wooden deck. I remember the noise it made when driving over it. Next time I'm up home i will have to check it out along with all my favorite bridges. I see lots of them have changed. Love this site!

On Tarbox Cemetery Rd, just W of US42. Looks like a recent rehab was done. Photo taken 7/5/07. Area cleared for easy viewing on west end of bridge. At Tarbox Cemetery & US42 is the first rest area in Ohio.
