Ohio Historic Bridge Association Fall Tour

Knowlton Covered Bridge

On Sunday I visited Covered Bridges for a change with the OHBA. This beautiful bridge is in Monroe County. It's closed to traffic and is in bad repair but looks striking in the panoramic photo. CLick the image for larger photo (as usual).

The Clark Road Bridge

The CLark Road Bridge in Marion County looks well cared for but is closed because of railing damage as shown in the picture above. This does not look all that serious! However, from the state of the road leading to this bridge it appears to have been closed for more than a year.

Damage to the Clark Road Bridge

Looks like a vehicle went through here! There is a pit in the stream below but no other indication.

The Roseville (OH) Bridge

This Warren (riveted) Pony Bridge is located in Roseville Ohio (Perry County) on the main (only) road through town. Its listed as built in 1900 although I think its style indicates it's more recent. It has been maintained well.

Unusual Bridge near East Liberty, Logan County, Ohio

I found this bridge while looking for another (that was gone)near East Liberty (that's where they make Honda Civics in the USA). Its an old (1910) metal stringer bridge, that is, it's supported by simple I-beams rather than a more sophisticated trusswork.
