Creek Bridge

I recently (6/5/2009) visited this heavy duty bridge first reported by Nathan Clark Jr. on an abandoned road in Trumbull County. This could be shortest Pratt through span bridge in Ohio! It used to go to Hubbard Furnace and was built to carry heavy iron loads. Another abandoned bridge - a concrete arch - is a short distance from this bridge and is clearly visible from the deck.
