Nice deduction and find! I hadn't realized there used to be a double pony in Findlay.


Yeah, that's definitely not Main Street in the inventory photos. North Main would have probably been a four-lane deal...and it was surrounded by downtown buildings as opposed to the residential scene in the images.

If it helps, this is what is in the Historic Bridge Inventory for SFN 3262200. This does seem to conflict with what I see in the NBI, since North Main is shown as SFN 3200272 in the NBI 2000 when the 1934 bridge was still there.

It would appear that just about every piece of information currently listed for this bridge is completely erroneous, except the SFN. The SFN points to it actually being the Cory Street Bridge, which was replaced in 2004. Looking at some of the data between the old and the new bridge, it lines up I will import the correct data and straighten everything out.

Not the right site and I'm not sure what bridge/location this is actually referring to. The current Main Street Bridge is a prestressed stringer from 2000 which replaced a 1934 steel stringer.
