Bridge Documentation

This bridge's main span system consists of nine pin-connected Parker truss spans. This makes it one of the longest surviving simple-span pin-connected truss bridges in the entire country. As such it should be considered to have a high level of historic significance. The bridge has been bypassed and abandoned. The trusses and deck remain in decent condition, but the caisson piers show signs of substantial deterioration at and below the waterline. As such, the bridge, without repair, is at risk for collapse.

The western 200 feet of this bridge is composed of steel stringer spans. Additionally, at this location, newer-looking concrete piers are visible. It is therefore assumed at this end of the bridge there was originally a through truss span here that was damaged somehow and replaced with the stringer spans.

There is a newer abandoned pony truss span that is structurally separate of this bridge just to the east.
