Bridge Documentation

This bridge's future is at risk!

Bridge Status: Slated for demolition and replacement!

This rare multi-span pony truss with different span sizes is to be demolished and replaced with an ugly modern bridge! 

This bridge is configured with three 100 foot central spans flanked at each end by three 80 foot spans. The condition of the bridge was such that it could have and should have been rehabilitated for continued use. It could also have been paired with another bridge to create a one way couplet of bridges to offer wider lanes for traffic.
