Bridge Documentation

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

This is a riveted truss bridge that is composed of only rolled beams. No built-up beams were used on this bridge's truss web. The bridge has an unusual shape because the horizontal portion of the top chord is short, while the sloped portion of the top chord is much longer.
