Mill Road Bridge

Mill Road Bridge

The Mill Road Bridge carries Mill Road over Greenville Creek in Gettysburg, Darke County, Ohio.


Constructed in 1881 by the Massillon Bridge Company of Massillon, Ohio, the Whipple through truss was rehabilitated in 2011 and 2012. 1 Rehabilitation work included repairing the superstructure, installing a new 3″ × 4″ timber strip deck and asphalt chip-seal surface, the placement of new wood guardrails and re-mortaring the masonry abutments.

The rehabilitated Mill Road Bridge is part of Ohio Bicycle Route 36 (Ohio and Indiana Trail) on the former Richmond & Covington Railroad/Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chicago & St. Louis Railroad/Pennsylvania Railroad/New York Central/Penn Central/Conrail, a line that was abandoned in 1983.
