This bridge is an extremely rare example of a truss bridge design that is noted for the very lightweight design as well as its vertical endposts. Members and chords are composed of small angles only. The endpost uses back to back channel with each back touching and not connected by any lattice or v-lacing. The truss is in the double-intersection Warren design. This general design of bridge is very rare today but similar examples can be found elsewhere, usually dating to the ca 1905-1910 period. They appear to have been "budget" bridges, which while not designed for heavier loads compared to a typical truss bridge for the early 20th Century, would have been less expensive to buy and easier to erect. This bridge sits today on private property. It may have been relocated off of a county road into its current location.
