This is a small riveted Warren pony truss. It was rehabilitated in 1999, and this is apparently when its original lattice railings were removed. Adding modern guardrail to a bridge is often needed for the safety of a historic truss bridge that is open to vehicular traffic. However removing the original railing is both pointless and detrimental to the historic integrity of the bridge. Projects should seek to leave the historic railing in place behind the added modern railing. It is unclear why that was not done here.

Statement of Significance

The light and uniform size of the diagonals and the placement of the floor beams suggest an early stage of all-riveted Warren pony construction. This bridge is of standard design for its type and stage and retains its original members, including latticed guardrails.

Architectural Description

Concrete abutments and wingwalls support the single-span Warren pony truss. The riveted structure extends 51' in three panels. Its all-interior verticals and its diagonals are manufactured from a pair of angles riveted together with battens. The I floor beams are riveted to gussets below the lower chord and carry the asphalt-over-concrete deck with its 15'7" roadway.

Bridge Considered Historic By Survey: Yes
