Author(s): Frank L. Raschig
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 120-131
Abstract:Previous to 1910, there was only one reinforced concrete bridge in Cincinnati, but that was a pioneer. This bridge is located in Eden Park, and is a Melan arch of 70-ft. span constructed in 1895. It was designed and built by F. von Emperger and has for its reinforcemet 9-in. curved I-beams, spaced 3ft.apart. The thickness at the crown is 15 in., and at the springings the thickness is 40 in. This bridge carries what is probably the earliest example of ornamental railing built entirely of Portland cement concrete in the United States.
