This bridge spans a gap in a causeway that allows overflow from the Mississippi River to pass under. The bridge is a traditionally composed example of a truss bridge from the 1930s. Its overhead bracing has been altered to increase vertical clearance on the bridge. This is evident because their are unused rivets on the vertical members, and above them the knee bracing is welded to the vertical instead of riveted. The welded knees appear to use original bridge material however because the knee bracing beams themselves are riveted.
The bridge includes two steel stringer approach spans. It has concrete piers whose compositon includes a riveted steel caisson component at each end.
This historic bridge has been demolished. This map is shown for reference purposes only.
