This bridge contains a single main through truss span with a partially subdivided Warren truss configuration that has the tendency to trick casual viewers into thinking the bridge is a Baltimore truss. The truss span appears to make extensive use of bolts for connections, built-up beams, etc suggesting that the bridge is a later example of a truss bridge. The truss span is flanked on each side by a single deck plate girder span. The girders and truss are supported by concrete piers. Tall rocker bearing are visible at the pier under the east end of the truss. Beyond the girder spans, a series of stringer spans supported by steel bents complete the approach at each end of the bridge.
This bridge is on the line from Albany to Dothan. The bridge and everything west of the river have been leased to a short-line operator. NS trains terminate at the small yard east of the river.
