Bridge Documentation

This bridge is a traditionally composed riveted through truss swing bridge. As truss bridges of any kind are rare in this part of the United States, this bridge has added local significance. The truss span appears to retain good historic integrity. Sometime between 2012 and 2014 the bridge was repainted.
