This pony truss was relocated here at an unknown date to replace a pin-connected pony truss bridge built by the Wrought Iron Bridge Company of Canton, Ohio. The truss seen here today dates to ca. 1920. It has replaced floor beams and added outriggers and supplemental rods.
Information and Findings From New Jersey's Historic Bridge Inventory
Discussion of Bridge
The undocumented ca. 1920 riveted Warren with verticals pony truss bridge is supported on one stone abutment and one concrete. The built-up box top chord and end posts are composed of channels turned toe in with cover plate. The original pipe railings remain. Alterations include bolted extensions of floor beams. The bridge was moved from Lambertville when the 1899 WIBC Pratt pony truss at this crossing was lost. One of over 25 Warren pony trusses in the county, this example is undistinguished.
Discussion of Surrounding Area
The bridge carries a lightly traveled country road over a minor stream in a wooded setting on the edge of the village of Locktown. An 18th century meeting house and 19th century school house are within sight of the bridge, but not close enough to be evaluated as part of any potential historic district.
