This is a traditionally composed riveted truss bridge. However, its truss configuration is that of a Warren truss with no vertical members. Because nearly all Warren truss bridges have vertical members, this truss is therefore a rare example of one without verticals.
Information and Findings From New Jersey's Historic Bridge Inventory
Discussion of Bridge
The skewed 4-panel rivet-connected Warren pony truss composed of standardized angle, channel, and plate members is supported on concrete abutments. A box beam replacing the original laced angle bottom chord was installed in 1985 as were new bolted gusset plates at the panel points and replacement floor beams. The significant alterations to the original design render the bridge technologically and historically undistinguished. A better example of the type is 18C0605.
Discussion of Surrounding Area
The one-lane bridge carries a quiet country road over the Lamington River near its confluence with the North Branch Raritan River. The setting is wooded with a mid-19th century farmhouse on the west side of the bridge.
