Bridge Documentation

View Archived National Bridge Inventory Report - Has Additional Details and Evaluation

This bridge breaks from the most common form of remaining historic Erie Canal bridge, and displays a Baltimore truss configuration instead of a Double Warren. As such it is a more unusual... and significant... example among the unusually large quantity of surviving historic Erie Canal bridges. One of the reasons so many historic Erie Canal bridges remain today is because preservation has been chosen, and many of these bridges has been rehabbed. However as of March 2009, this bridge had not yet been rehabbed. It is interesting to note the condition and design of a pre-rehab bridge for documentary purposes. Traditional early 20th Century truss bridge railing design is present: hub-guard style lattice railing on the truss line with no adjacent cantilevered sidewalk, no railing on the side adjacent to the one and only sidewalk (which is cantilevered), and large lattice panel railings on the sidewalk.
