Description 

Originally a B&O Railroad bridge over Willis Creek, it was relocated to be used as a vehicular bridge in 1910, where it was eventually listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was relocated once again in 2007 to a new location as part of the Great Allegheny Passage trail.
