View The Historic Bridge Inventory Report For This Bridge

This bridge, having excellent historic integrity including plaques, is a good example of Maryland's standard plan for through truss bridges employed in the late portion of the truss bridge era. This particular example is skewed.  There is an abundance of rolled i-beams making up the bridge. The only v-lacing present is on the built-up overhead lateral bracing. As such, the truss has a simpler appearance to it than other truss bridge, yet still remains a bold structure with a high level of aesthetic value.

The design of this standard plan is wide, even including shoulders beyond the two lanes, which should make continued preservation on a state highway feasible.
