This truss bridge was built in 1911 and is a late example of a pin-connected truss bridge that shows hints of a transition to the practice of riveted connections. The first two panels feature a bottom chord that is composed of a pair of angles with battens which are riveted to a gusset plate at the connection points. Remaining bottom chord segments are eyebars connected with pins. This bridge has a series of short approach spans whose superstructure has been replaced, but whose original concrete piers remain. There are also remains of the bearings from the old superstructure, but not enough to know what was originally here, although the placement of the bearings outside of the boundaries of the roadway suggest they were either pony truss or through girder spans. It would be interesting to know what the original approach span type was.
