Bridge Status: Slated for demolition and replacement!
This bridge is a rare example of a cantilever truss bridge that features a tied arch suspended span. Large hinges can be seen where the bridge design changes from truss to arch over the waterway some distance from the piers. The truss cantilever arms extend for 60 feet (two panels) inward over the navigation span. The remaining 16 panels are the 480 foot tied arch suspended span. Anchor spans are 270 feet each.
American Bridge Company was just one of a large number of contractors who were involved with the construction of this large bridge. A historical pamphlet shown below lists all the involved contractors. Within the list are many large bridge contractors.
