Salina Bridge & General Refractories Plant
The nearly 700 foot long Parker through truss bridge saw a major rehabilitation in 1978. However, continued deterioration has led to a 10 ton weight limit and the state is currently debating on whether to repair or replace the bridge.
Salina was a company town of the Kier Firebrick Company. Most of the homes were built at the start of the 20th century. The Kier Firebrick company would eventually become the General Refractories Company. The former plant sat on the Salina side of the bridge. The plant was eventually demolished and all that remains is a concrete pad.
