This a private bridge that is a fair distance off of a public road (Shepardsville Road), yet is visible (at least when the leaves are off the trees) from that road. The bridge appears to be a metal bowstring truss bridge.
However, it does not appear to be one of the 1870s bowstrings that are normally called to mind when hearing this structure type described. Instead, it appears to be a bridge built in the early 20th Century, a period when bowstring truss
bridges were hardly ever built. Typical of a truss bridge built in this period, it appears to use standard rolled shapes (like rolled angle) for the truss members and it appears to use riveted connections.
