Bridge Documentation

View Archived National Bridge Inventory Report - Has Additional Details and Evaluation

Doniphan County seems to have had a past history of reusing truss bridges and/or truss bridge parts, with several bridges showing unusual signs of alteration or salvage. This is one such bridge. This was a originally a standard Pratt through and, based on concrete abutments, likely relocated here. When it was relocated, the center panel was narrowed. Visitors to the bridge should note the most obvious evidence aside from the narrow center panel length is that the bottom chord eyebar was cut to shorten it, and a splice riveted together on it at the center to reuse it as a shorter eyebar. The fact that the bottom chord splice is riveted (rather than welded or bolted) is evidence that this shortening of the truss happened a long time ago.
