Further research into this bridge revealed that the previous bridge at this location was a railroad bridge that had been converted for highway use. It was a narrow one-lane bridge and in 1947 this bridge was replaced with the bridge seen today. The approaches were all-new construction, while the truss span was relocated and reused here from an unknown previous location. The relocated truss dates to 1914. The sidewalks on the truss were likely not original to the truss span, and added in 1947 when the truss was moved here.
This bridge is noted for its uncommon Camelback truss main span, which according to the plaque on the bridge is dated to 1914. The approach spans for this bridge are concrete slabs with balustrade railings, and they date to 1947 according to a casting on the railing. Sidewalks on the truss bridge appear to have been something added after 1914.
