Old CR-82 Bridge

Built by the Wrought Iron Bridge Co. in 1883 just SW of Zoar in Tuscarawas County on a now abandoned section of County Road 82 this bridge was faithfully restored in 2004 for use on the Zoar Valley Trail as a pedestrian bridge. The iron 3-span Pratt pinned through truss bridge is a rare early example of continuous span construction. It crosses the Tuscarawas River.
