This very short through truss bridge has been abandoned, and is overgrown and deteriorated. The bridge has v-lacing on top of the top chord instead of cover plate.

Bridge History and Significance
Located immediately south of U.S. #150 between C.R. 590W and 725W. This single-span, pin-connected Pratt through span and its I-beam approach to the north sit upon concrete abutments and wingwalls and a pier of laced channels. These extraordinarily light trusses have four panels. The pair of channels used in each top-chord member is laced rather than reinforced with a cover plate. A pair of light square eyebars supplies each lower-chord member. The single--and therefore central--intermediate vertical consists of two pairs of laced angles, while a pair of light square eyebars provide each hip-vertical suspender. The second and third panels have diagonals of a pair of light square eyebars and counters of a pair of adjustable rod. U-bolted to the lower pins, I-floor-beams carry a timber deck. Narrow-channel guardrails protect the trusses and demark the edges of the approach. Virtually every member of this rather old Pratt through span speaks of lightness. The trusses retain their original members. References
