This bridge is a very interesting bridge for several reasons. First, it has a heavy skew to it. Secondly, it follows an uncommon truss configuration, the double-intersection Warren. Thirdly, it was built by the Berlin Construction Company, a noteworthy successor to the famous builder of lenticular truss bridges, Berlin Iron Bridge Company. Finally, the bridge has uncommon longitudinal bracing running through the middle of the overhead bracing system. This extra bracing tends to show up on wider bridges and is a little unexpected here. The bridge features an attractive triangular shaped portal bracing. This bridge is in need of rehabilitation, and its weight limit has been reduced in recent years due to deterioration. It is hoped that the bridge will be rehabilitated, and not demolished and replaced.
The Berlin Construction Company apparently still exists today as the Berlin Steel Construction Company. Information is available here.
This historic bridge has been demolished. This map is shown for reference purposes only.
