Prospect in Marion County was home to this Parker pinned through truss bridge until removed in July. Built by the Standard Engineering Corp in 1913, it was the most distinguishing landmark of Prospect. Those who thought it couldn't be saved need to take a look on Main Street in Newark, Ohio. The county is set to destroy two more historic through truss bridges in the next few years - the Clark Road and St. James Road bridges.
