Pony truss bridge next to the Covered Bridge

This was found as we were walking back across the bridge. It may have been used in the film "The Bridges of Madison County" as Robert and Fracesca were heading to the Roseman Bridge. However, it is not 100% sure. If you know of this bridge, it would be much appreciated when you add the data. Thanks. JS

Carries Waren Street over Middle River
Design: truss/through/pratt
Design Details: Six panel, wrought iron, pin-connected Pratt through truss.

"Built in 1884 in the crossroads town of Bevington, this wagon bridge consists of a pin-connected through truss, with iron cylinder piers and timber stringer approaches. This 102-foot channel span features typical 1880s Pratt configuration and pin-connected detailing. Bevington Bridge is significant as one of the last remaining examples in Madison County from what was once an extensive group of 19th century trusses, a well-preserved illustration of wrought iron truss construction."
