English: The Fourteenth Street Bridge, also known as the Ohio Falls Bridge, Pennsylvania Railroad Bridge, Conrail Railroad Bridge or Louisville and Indiana (L&I) Bridge, is a truss drawbridge that spans the Ohio River, between Louisville, Kentucky and Clarksville, Indiana. Work began on August 1, 1867. Albert Fink was the architect, who used his Fink truss design for the project. On February 18, 1870, the first train crossed the bridge. Between May 1916 and January 1919 a new single-track steel superstructure was placed on the old stone piers. Since 1994, the bridge has been owned by the Louisville and Indiana Railroad.
