2021 Update: A project to convert this historic bridge to a pedestrian bridge is underway. Although designed with a swing span it is unlikely this span ever operated. The previous bridge was a swing bridge and did not operate either. The War Department was responsible for requiring a swing span. Had the swing span operated, it would have been unusual design, with ends of the swing span NOT resting on piers, but rather meeting fixed girders that cantilevered out from the pier. HistoricBridges.org is listing the span length between piers, rather than the traditional swing span length for the main span length.
This bridge is a long-multi-span deck plate girder bridge that is noted for its visually attractive girders which are haunched, built-up, riveted beams. The bridge retains good integrity including handsome metal railings with concrete posts.
