Spring St
One of the interesting highway quirks in Columbus. There are two different bridges there!

Looking south, you see this quadruple concrete arch bridge

From the top of the Spring St bridge. Nothing spectacular, nor any plaques commemerating it's completion.

But if you look north, it's an entirely different view. Blasee concrete piers!
It is my surmise that the EB bridge (non arch) was completed as part of the Long St extension as part of Spring-Sandusky part 1, back in the early 1960s, after the WB bridge was completed. This is the only occurance I've come upon of two different bridge designs for one span.
