This is a design of bridge that is in general highly unusual, but can be found on multiple highway over railroad type bridges. They are likely the design of the railroad company... although highway bridges, some of the design is more typical of a railroad bridge. The unusual design lies in the composition of the truss members, which are a combination of angles and plate. This gives the bridge's truss members visually a somewhat more two-dimensional appearance compared to most truss bridges. This bridge's trusses retain good historic integrity, however the floor beams are not original. A series of timber approach spans are also present at each end of this bridge. There is a dramatic "hump" to this bridge. The base of the end posts of this bridge have a plate with empty rivet holes. This may indicate the bridge was altered or relocated, or some other type of change occurred during the history of the bridge.
