Looks like this bridge at Waverly was razed in 1961.

John,

Might this have been the railroad bridge you are referring to? It appears to have been lost in the 1990's.

Yes, this would have been a 3 span (likely pin connected) truss, gone between 1960 and 1971.

Possibly related to this discussion, possibly not; but there was an additional truss bridge over the Scioto just south of Chillicothe, removed between 1983 and 1994. When I was marking these lines for my maps, I certainly got confused more than once in this area..

This photo shows a truss as well: https://www.facebook.com/PikeHeritageMuseum/photos/a.4582032... No telling if it was the same bridge in the aerials though--it may have been replaced after 1913 or later.
