Information and Findings From DHPA Historic Bridge Survey

Bridge History and Significance

Concrete abutments, wingwalls, and pier support the 173', two-span, Warren pony trusses which are offset about 16% from one another. Each riveted span extends 84' in six panels. External sway braces are integrated with the verticals. The verticals are made from two pairs of angles riveted together with battens and the diagonals from a pair of heavy angles and battens. The outer diagonals are heavier than the inner ones. The I floor-beams are bolted to the verticals above the lower chord and carry the concrete deck with its 24' roadway. The weight and varied size of the diagonals, the placement of the floor-beams, and the integration of knee or external sway braces with the verticals mark the final stage in the design of all-riveted Warren pony trusses. Only the skew of the trusses is unusual. The bridge retains its original members, including latticed guardrails.
