This bridge is an outstanding example of a pin-connected railroad through truss, a bridge type that is becoming increasingly rare. This bridge has been spared demolition and instead today functions as part of a rail trail, the main deck of the bridge having been converted for this purpose. Dating back to the bridge's original railroad days, a sidewalk is cantilevered off the south side of the bridge, which is today still in place but closed off.
Each span has a diagonal eyebar replaced with a riveted box beam with lattice. The design of this diagonal member indicates that this is either a very old alteration, or it is an alteration that used an old beam salvaged from some other old bridge. The diagonals replaced are on both truss webs and are one of the two opposing diagonals in the center panel and they are the same diagonal in each span (meaning that considering the replaced diagonal members, neither the spans nor the bridge as a whole are symmetrical) That the same single diagonal in each span's truss webs would be replaced suggests an unusual story. Could the trains that used this bridge have been empty and lightweight going in one direction and fully loaded when they went in the other direction? This is one possible explanation for the asymmetric replacement of truss members in this span.
