Additional Information: It is now believed the bridge dates to 1902 based off research into railroad records conducted by John Marvig.
This bridge is an uncommon example of a railroad pony truss. Plate girders and through truss bridges were more common than pony truss bridges on railroads. The bridge carries a single track yet has surprisingly massive trusses. The size of the top chord and end post is particularly impressive. The bridge is traditionally composed for a railroad bridge. The Historic American Engineering Record inventory listed a ca. 1920 construction date. The plaque for the bridge is missing, but the shape of the scar left by the missing plaque on the end post suggests the bridge may have bee built by the Wisconsin Bridge and Iron Company of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
