Bridge Documentation

This is one of a unique group of six historic truss bridges found along this road. This section of road was a former railroad line, abandoned ca. 1899 and later converted to a highway. Construction date given is an estimate. The 1921 construction date shown in the National Bridge Inventory may indicate this bridge was moved to this location from an unknown previous location at that date.

Bridge History and Significance

This full-hip, single-span Pratt pony truss rests upon cut stone abutments and wingwalls with concrete caps. The pin-connected structure extends 84' in five panels. At 16'7", the panels are unusually wide. Its verticals are fabricated from two pairs of laced angles and most of its diagonals of a pair of die-forged eyebars. The center panel's diagonal and counter each consist of a single adjustable and cylindrical rod. I floor-beams, which are bolted to pin plates, carry the concrete deck with its 15'10" roadway. Aside from the width of the panels, the design of this Pratt pony span is rather standard for a pinned structure. The original members of the unadorned bridge still function.
