IORY/B&O Rattlesnake Creek Bridges near East Monroe, OH

New: (Bridge Hunter; no Historic Bridges; Satellite)

They reused the cut-stone piers.

Did they replace the piers or just encase the old piers in concrete? This confirms what I noticed in the satellite image: the center pier is massive compared to the other ones.

David Rohdenburg: There are very few images of the trestle and waterfall at East Monroe, wow! Tracks are still there today as the Greenfield Subdivision of the I&O, but they only go over the trestle a couple of times a week, and, sadly, the waterfall is now inaccessible.
