Built by the Massillon Bridge Co. in 1882 this Double Intersect Pratt (or Whipple) Pinned Through Truss bridge is in Logan County over the Great Miami River. This rare iron bridge is reportedly to be removed this summer, a short-sighted decision that would result in a significant loss.
Note added 4/3/2007: County denies that it has plans to work on the above bridge according to the Ohio Historic Preservation Office.
