This Pratt through truss bridge connects Pleasant Hill Dam with a water intake structure in Pleasant Hill Lake. Built in 1936 by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer's, the dam is right in the middle of two major recreation areas; Mohican State Park and Mohican Memorial Forest below the dam and Pleasant Hill Lake Park, created by the dam, above it. The dam and lake are located on the Clear Fork branch of the Mohican River, west of Loudonville, in Ashland County.
