Bridge Documentation

This bridge has a 1910 construction date listed. That date applies to the attractive and historic pin-connected through truss approach span. However, this bridge's main swing span has been demolished and replaced by a structure that lacks historic significance. This page has been created on HistoricBridges.org mainly to note the approach span. It is a traditionally composed example of a pin-connected railroad truss bridge and it appears to retain good historic integrity.
