Information and Findings From DHPA Historic Bridge Survey

Bridge History and Significance

The designers of this single-span Warren pony truss used a polygonal top chord. Never parallel with the lower one, the top chord changes slope from one midpanel point to the next. Seated upon concrete abutments and wingwalls, the largely-bolted structure extends 102' in six panels. Its all-interior verticals are manufactured from pairs of angles riveted together with an occasional stay plate which also serves the external sway braces and its diagonals from a pair of angles (somewhat heavier in the outer panels) also riveted together with a few stay plates. The I floor-beams are bolted to the verticals below the lower chord and carry the 16'9" timber deck. This is a quite long example, especially for bolted connections, of an unusual variation of a Warren pony truss. The undecorated whole was fabricated along standard lines for its kind and retains its original integrity. Closed in 2001.
