This bridge consists of two spans, one a pin-connected through truss and the other a rivet-connected Warren pony truss. The 1914 date given for the construction of this bridge (assuming its correct, which is not for
certain) would place the pin-connected truss as a very late example of its kind. The riveted Warren pony truss approach span appears to have been moved to this location from elsewhere at a later date, based on the difference in design
between the two spans, and also the fact that the pony truss span sits somewhat unusually upon the caisson pier which has pieces of floorbeams from other truss bridges stacked up to bring the truss bridge up to the right height to match the
level of the through truss. This is obviously a bridge with a story to tell, and very little is currently known about the bridge. It would be nice to learn more about its history.
