This bridge is an extremely unusual and historic structure. The bridge is firstly noted for its use of three truss lines, allowing it to provide a wider roadway, albeit with a truss in the middle. Secondly, the subdivided double-intersection Warren pony truss configuration is also unusual. Another oddity is that the end panels of this bridge are not subdivided, but all the others are. The vertical end posts are also an unusual detail in the design of this bridge. Sadly, this bridge has not been maintained. Although a highway bridge, this bridge, which crosses a railroad line, is maintained by the railroad. It would be feasible to restore for continued light vehicular use, but it remains whether to be seen whether this sensible course of action will be taken for this bridge.
The bridge has little beams attached to the side of a bottom chord that have been cut. This suggests the bridge once had a cantilevered sidewalk.
