St. James Road Bridge

Located in Marion County adjacent to the Kings Mill Golf Club this Parker through truss bridge crosses the Olentangy River. The extensive use of ornamental lacing is unusual for the reported 1937 construction date. The bridge is also pinned not rivieted as reported by OHBI hence it is probably much older!

This bridge is scheduled for replacement in 2012 according to the office of the county engineer. Preservation does not appear to be under consideration!
