Cincinnati bridge photograph
Description: Caption reads: "View of Bridges from Lower River Road." The railroad-only Southern Bridge, built by the Cincinnati Southern Railroad in 1877, connects western Cincinnati with Ludlow, Kentucky. Built as a a single track bridge on masonry pier with a swing span at the southern end, the bridge was rebuilt in 1922 with modifications to widen the upper half of the original piers with concrete and build a double truss around the original truss. Although the circular pivot pier of the original bridge's swing span was left intact, the reconstructed bridge no longer has a swing or draw span. View on Ohio Memory.
