Bridge Documentation

This abandoned railroad bridge has what appear to be very old truss spans, plus a plate girder built by the Elmira Bridge Company in 1900. There is a very good chance the truss spans are older (and possibly moved here from another location). The style of the lightweight trusses suggests an 1880s original fabrication date. An abandoned railroad turntable is near the bridge.
