In terms of historic preservation, this bridge is an example of a great outcome, and a smart decision, yet one that sadly doesn't happen very often. It is a historic railroad bridge that was relocated and reused (sadly this is unusual), and was reused as a pedestrian over railroad overpass (also sadly unusual for historic bridge reuse). Reusing the railroad bridge for a pedestrian over railroad overpass and a connector to a train station kept the railroad context intact for this historic bridge.
This bridge has an impressive skew that gives it a distinct appearance.
The experience viewing this bridge from the parking lot is more exciting than walking on the bridge itself. Likely due to railroad restrictions, there is an overkill enclosure within the truss that blocks the view of most of the bridge for those on the walkway.
