View A Historical Article Discussing This Bridge

This bridge consists of one through truss main span and a long series of short concrete slab spans. The truss span is composed of members, chords, and bracing that are all composed of rolled beams, with no built-up beams present. The bridge is a relatively early example of this, but represents a trend that took place during the middle decades of the 20th Century. The lack of built-up beams with v-lacing or lattice give the truss a more plain appearance than earlier bridges with these details. The approach spans with their equally simple looking concrete slab superstructures have concrete balustrade railings, which represent the extent of architectural treatment on the bridge aside from the inherent geometry of the truss itself. The bridge today is largely unaltered and it retains good historic integrity.
