Bridge History

Bridge 90591 was originally constructed in 1923 replacing a bridge built in 1896. The new bridge is a reinforced concrete open spandrel arch using the Melan System to reinforce the arches. The bridge was rehabilitated in 1973. At that time abutment repairs were made, the concrete deck and railing replaced, and a few other repairs were done.

The bridge was listed on the NRHP (National Register of Historic Places) in 1998.

O.N.E. Involvement
