The bridge was indeed demolished and replaced in 2000 per the NBI. I corrected the status. As to the former historic bridge, I sadly could not find any photos or info in the Historic Bridge Inventories under this SFN.

The NBI date of 2000 suggests that the original 1913 pony truss was replaced with a modern one. An unfortunate, but all too common, occurrence in Ohio.
