“one of the last privately owned toll bridges”
Built in 1905 by the Homer Laughlin China Company, the Newell Toll Bridge that connects East Liverpool, Ohio to Newell, West Virginia is one of the last privately owned toll bridges in the country. The company built the bridge when the Ohio based company decided to move its headquarters across the river into West Virginia for better river frontage. Due to the fact that their weren't any bridges crossing the river for miles, the company decided to build one. The bridge serves nearly 3,000 crossings each day, charging 50 cents for vehicles and a nickel for those who want to cross on foot.
