Significance: The Junction Road Bridge is a bowstring arch truss bridge, a popular design in the nineteenth century. Its bow is a lattice similar to a Howe truss in its pattern of diagonals and verticals. It was probably built by the Massillon Iron Bridge Company of Massillon, Ohio, which built bowstring bridges based on a design patented in 1867 by its founder, Joseph Davenport.
