Bridge Documentation

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

This little pony truss is an early example of a truss bridge with riveted connections. The bridge has counters at all panels giving it unusual appearance. The bridge was demolished and replaced, but the truss webs were mounted on the replacement bridge as a decoration, so at least the primary part of the historic bridge remains available for viewing.
