This bridge is interesting because it contains a concrete
t-beam approach span at each end, with steel stringer main spans in the center.
For a bridge of this length and structure type, one might expect the entire
bridge to simply be all steel stringer spans. Also interestingly, the bridge's
railings match the spans... the bridge has concrete balustrade railings over the
t-beam spans, while the steel stringer spans have a metal railing design that
seems to follow a general architectural pattern similar to
Michigan's Type R4 railings. Many of
Indiana's stringer bridges from this period lack integrity by the removal and
replacement of their railings. This bridge appears to offer a rare look at what
the railings on these mid-20th Century bridges might have looked like.
