Bridge Documentation

View Archived National Bridge Inventory Report - Has Additional Details and Evaluation

This bridge is a good example of c. 1910 truss bridge construction. Interestingly, (and purely coincidentally) it is nearly identical in design and appearance to bridges found in the state of Indiana such as the Wilden Avenue Bridge, with the exception that this bridge lacks outriggers.
