The Historic National Road in OhioThe Broad Street bridge is a significant part of the history of Columbus and the National Road. Until 1816, the only ways to cross the Scioto River were to ford the river during low water or to use the ferry. From 1816 to 1834 a series of wooden toll bridges were built to span the river. In 1834, the National Road Bridge was constructed. This covered bridge was free of any tolls and remained in service until replaced by an iron truss bridge in 1883. The flood of 1913 heavily damaged that bridge.
