Saunders Creek Bridge, Washington County

In 1918, the Rochester Bridge Co., of Rochester, Indiana, built this 60-foot riveted Warren pony span. Above and below are two good views of this structure. As you can see, the bridge is so placed that it crosses the creek at right angles, as was typical for most bridges. In the photo below it is easy to see the manner of construction for the lower chord and the concrete abutments.

Above, a detail of the truss from the deck. The span is 4 panels long. Feild connections appear to be bolted, while shop-made connections use rivets. Below, Lackawanna stamp mark on the upper chord channel.

Above, another view of this fine old bridge. The Rochester bridge Company made many small and medium size steel spans for Washington and neighboring Osage Counties.
