Roscoe Bridge, Jackson-Tuscarawas, Coshocton County, OH Built 1836-39 Lost 1887
Miriam G. Wood Collection
Comments:
One of the acts of the legislature that authorized the bridge identified that it was to be a double track bridge. Records show the bridge was re-roofed in 1867 and again in 1868 and in 1869 (perhaps from storm damage?). In 1880 the bridge needed reinforcement -arches were added.
