PARKER CAMELBACK COVERED BRIDGE
This presentation by Brad Irons will be an overview of Marion County’s replacement of a historic 190’ Parker “Camelback” thru truss structure over the Olentangy River with a new authentic Pratt Truss timber covered bridge. The new bridge is capable of handling all modern loads and providing for all legal clearances along with two way traffic on the bridge. The structure not only greatly improved the traffic safety and movement of legal loads; but also, not only enhances the local aesthetics, but the entire scenic area and our whole County.
Brad Irons P.E.,P.S., Marion County Engineer, graduated from Ohio Northern University with a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering.. From school he began his career at the Marion County Engineer’s Office as Deputy Engineer. He was placed in charge of all aspects of the office, including all the engineering/surveying/construction work for the next 17 years.
He is a Professional Engineer and a Professional Surveyor in the State of Ohio. Brad became the County Engineer in 2001 to the present, building over $20 million of new roadways and infrastructure while still maintaining the existing County Transportation network.

REMEMBER THE FOUR-WAY TEST
The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotarians recite it at club meetings:
Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to all concerned?
Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
