Per the link below, it appears that at least one pier is rounded.

I’m building a model of the Lick Creek bridge between Boody and St. Paul.  I understand from the NWHS Clinch Valley District book that it’s a 3 section plate girder so I need 2 piers.  Being unable to locate a photo, I’m having to guess at the shape of the piers.  I guess the goods is that lacking any photographic evidence nobody is likely to argue with my choice either. J So… I’m looking for an educated guess of what the piers probably look like.  Are the ends rounded, pointed or squared?  Do they taper from bottom to top?  Are all 4 sides tapered or only 2?  Should there be a visible footing at the bottom and what would it’s shape be? Carl WoodsRichmond, VA
