This bridge is a late example of a large riveted truss bridge. Although it serves expressway traffic, it retains good historic and structural integrity. It represents mid-20th century truss bridge construction quite well with extensive use of built-up box beams with hand holes.
Currently, HistoricBridges.org only has overview photos of this bridge, mostly taken from on the bridge. Lacking extensive photography, it was not possible to do a detailed analysis of the structure type. However, based on the photos available, it does not appear that this bridge exhibits any hinges that would allow it to function as a cantilever truss. Therefore, it appears to function as a continuous truss even though it has the shape of many cantilever truss bridges. The bridge may have been built using the cantilever method, but if it lacks hinges, it will not function as a cantilever under traffic.
