Another bridge similar to this bridge can be found at coordinates 39.77009 -75.57959.
This is one of a couple surviving bridges in Delaware that are unique because they are so small and lightweight. This bridge is about as small and simple as a truss bridge can get. The age and construction date are assumed as the bridge is nearly identical to other bridges known to have been built by Edge Moor Bridge Works in ca. 1890. Given this construction date, the bridge is an early rivet-connected highway truss bridge as well, since pin-connected truss bridges were still the standard at this time.
