Inscription.  
The viaduct of splendor that spans our winding stream,
Service untold will render and be the tourists' dream.
In the strength and beauty rising, our safety to insure
The friendship symbolizing, cemented to endure,
with hooks of steel we grapple,
The friends long years have brought
To souls that will prove stable, lovers of Conneaut.
Elizabeth Strong Brown, 1924

"The largest structure ever built on the Ohio Highway System at the time of its completion in 1924."
