Did McClintic Marshall have anything to do with this bridge? Listed as American Bridge in ENR. https://historicbridges.org/ohio/corail/cocinci.pdf

The Clay Wade Baily(road) Bridge is parallel or attached to the east side of this railroad bridge. It is a regular cantaleiver like the Brent Spence and is three lanes controlled by lane signals. It was built ca1975 to replace an earlier bridge.
