Bridge Documentation

View Archived National Bridge Inventory Report - Has Additional Details and Evaluation

This bridge is a riveted deck truss bridge. It avoids the use of built-up beams, somewhat unusual for its age, and as a result is also visually distinguished by its lack of v-lacing or lattice compared to typical bridges of this age. Another unusual detail is that this bridge's truss span is rigidly connected to steel stringer approach spans, making the bridge unusual since it is continuous between two different structure types.
