Bridge Documentation

This bridge no longer exists!

Bridge Status: This historic bridge was demolished with no replacement in 2016.

This highway over railroad bridge was likely moved to this location in 1906 from an unknown previous location. The design of the truss members, quite different from most highway truss bridges of the period, is representative of the different design approach taken by railroads. Bridges of this style designed by the railroads seen today are often not in their original location as the railroads seem to have moved them around as needed, much like they did with any bridges they owned. This bridge appears to be an example of that, as the style of bridge is typically older than the 1906 construction date given. Further, the abutments consist of stone abutments with a concrete section added on top. This concrete section bears the date 1906. 

Joel Wyman reported the following:

Sadly this bridge no longer exists and was removed sometime early this year due to teenage vandals. It was closed in 2006 due to the poor state of its deck and was supposed to be repaired as per the sign down the road a mile or so but instead the funds were allocated elsewhere.

Demolition of a historic bridge is a complete over-reaction and an improper response to teenage vandals. The proper response would be to address the problem: Arrest the teenagers, contact the parents, throw them in the prison located less than two miles from this bridge, etc. Allowing teenagers to dictate historic bridge preservation policy is just plain ridiculous.
