Meldahl Dam Bridge

Photo; (top) Satolli Glassmeyer 2/2008

Can you see it in the aerial photo? It is even more difficult when the foliage is out! This little Pratt pony bridge over Bear Creek is just north of Meldahl Dam in Clermont County. According to the county historian it once led to a school and two houses between U.S. 52 and the Ohio River. When the dam was built in the late 1950's the road was eventually closed and the bridge abandoned. Except for the lack of everything wooden (probably removed to prevent use) it looks in remarkably good condition.
