Statement of Significance
Aside from the use of I beams for verticals and the gradual slope of the top chord, this is a rather standard riveted truss. It retains its original members, including its decoratively latticed portals.
Atop its concrete abutments and wingwalls, this all-riveted Parker through truss spans 174' in nine panels. Heavy I beam verticals separate the panels, for each of which the top chord slopes differently and gently. Angles (decreasing in size toward midspan) are riveted to stay plates and are riveted inward from top to bottom panel points; they also serve as counters in the three most central panels. I floor beams, riveted to gussets and verticals above the lower chord, support the asphalt-over-timber deck with a 16' roadway.
