Year Built: Unknown
Architect/Builder: Unknown
Original Owner: B. & O. Railroad

This Pratt through truss bridge was most likely constructed between the late-1870s and early-1900s, primarily servicing the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, and later the Pennsylvania Railroad.  This bridge traverses the Kokosing River on the west side of the Viaduct, and was constructed to replace an earlier bridge, most likely of wood-beam design.  This section of the railroad primarily serviced freight lines until the passenger depot was constructed in the early-1900s along West High Street, outside of the Downtown Mount Vernon Historic District.  This railroad has remained active to the present day.
