This bridge is abandoned on the closed and very deteriorated north end of Fish Creek Road near Alliance in Mahoning County. The bridge is similar to the Longman Road Bridge in Preble County and has been variously described as an Iron Howe Truss or a double intersect Warren truss. The build date is given by OHBI as 1880 but it could be older. This is a rare old bridge and needs to be preserved, which likely will require it be moved to a protected site.
