This bridge is a noteworthy structure in a state that has a relatively small truss bridge population. The bridge consists of five heavily skewed through truss spans. The spans contain seven panels. The trusses are traditionally composed, with riveted built-up beams containing v-lacing and lattice. The bridge has unusual caisson-like piers covered in riveted boiler plate type material. This was formerly the Atlanta & West Point RR. The legendary Crescent Limited used this lined and crossed this bridge on its Washington to New Orleans route. It still sees considerable freight movement.
