Well sir... anything is possible... We know it had to be one of these two designs.
With the evidence of an almost exact longer copy as he made for the other side of Scalp Mountain the best guess and best evidence of final design our group has come up with so far.
There is just that "John Allen" factor hee that can't be ignored. He did not like making any two bridges alike.. ! I fact he had managed to NOT do it in the more than 100 he'd already created to that point. So I guarantee he was considering every option. Doing both would really be a crazy fun madman's endeavour...! John would approve...
Randy, this is a beauty and certainly John Allen-worthy! I agree he repeated few designs, and this would definitely be a nice addition. I’m thinking that this particular viewing angle, if reversed and scaled properly, could be superimposed
on the classic giant canyon photo to get a good idea of its impact. If I can find some time I’ll try to make it happen with my rudimentary skills.

For the fun of It I might build a version of this bridge.. (Since the notebook sketches we know exist, do not seem to be in the hands of anyone who will ever let them see the light of day) To save the foolish arguments from other who might
not actually read the posts.......""I do not think this is what John would have done"".. but Girder connections to some version of a half through arch could easily be made to look quite good.
