Remarks & Notes 
Another de"relic"t from the past, this massive bridge sits at the beginning of the now defunct Levisa Branch, which served mines in the Biggs area. This line was taken out by the building and flooding of the line by Fishtrap Reservoir, built in the '60's. It also served the infamous "Coon Creek Branch", which was an ill conceived connector to serve mines on Johns Creek. It was a tortuous route with a 2%+ grade that is still in use by a local coal company as a haul road. Incidentally, this bridge at one time was over the Ohio River, hence its size, but was relocated to Millard due to weight constraints.
