Cleves Warsaw Road Bridge
Camelback and Parker trusses have a distinctive sloping top chord, but share the vertical structural members of the Pratt truss design patented in1844 by Thomas and Caleb Pratt of Boston, Massachusetts. The sloping design of the Camelback and Parker truss variation used fewer materials, which made them a cost- effective choice for spans longer than 200 feet. The bridge was determined eligible for inclusion on the National Registry of Historical Places for technological significance in 2008 by the Ohio Department of Transportation and State Historical Preservation Office as one of the last representative examples of Camelback through trusses in the State
Erected by Ohio Dept of Transportation.
