Bridge Documentation

This bridge is a multi-span railroad through truss that was abandoned in the 1960s and was converted for pedestrian use in 2006. The bridge retains good historic integrity although its builder plaque on the end post has been stolen. The piers appear to have been retrofitted. No major repairs or changes appear to have been made to the truss superstructure. The pedestrian deck is concrete and one interesting detail is red colored concrete strips in the deck show the former location of the railroad rails on the bridge, an interesting and subtle way to remind visitors of this bridge's railroad past.
