Bridge Documentation

This bridge consists of three traditional riveted through truss main spans and a long series of concrete t-beam approach spans at the northern end of the bridge. The bridge was bypassed and abandoned in 1986, but remains accessible for pedestrians. The bridge retains good historic integrity aside from minor issues like the welding of a beam to an end post for example. Original metal railings remain on the truss spans, and original concrete railings on the t-beam spans.
