Former PRR bridge, Massillon OH, built in 1948, it curves as it spans the water, making it somewhat unique.

Tom Lane I think that is an awesome bridge, always loved the curve/skew combination of that bridge with vertical and enclined end posts.
It was built in 1948, which is rather late for a truss RR bridge. In the satellite image it appears you can see the piers of the previous bridge south of the existing bridge.
