This bridge is right next to the Intercity Viaduct.

This bridge is not a very old example of its type. Its late 1963 construction date is visually supported by the lack of v-lacing and lattice in built-up members. This was a period of transition away from rivets. THis bridge has bolted connections, but the built-up members are of riveted construction.

This bridge serves a freeway near an interchange. To accomodate the ramp configuration, the north end of the main truss spans splits into two truss units, one wider than the other, with the narrower truss serving an offramp.
