This bridge appears to have originally served a branch of the primary Maine Central railroad line in this area, which crosses this same creek within sight of this bridge, via a
plate girder bridge. This truss bridge on the presumed branch line is far more interesting and significant, and is likely older as well. It is a pony truss that follows a
double-intersection Warren configuration. Bridges of this design were occasionally built by railroad companies. Surviving examples are rare today, but can be found in other states. The bridge today no longer carries railroad tracks and
appears to be owned and in use by a private business, which appears to use it for vehicular traffic. The bridge rests on stone abutments.
