Bridge Documentation

The bridge has an unclear history. It has portal bracing that matches the sway bracing. Yet on the end posts, there is the scar and empty bolt holes of what appears to have been a portal bracing knee attachment. However, there is no attachment evidence to the existing portal bracing. The existing portal bracing however does not look like a modern replacement. One is forced to consider the possibility that this was once a longer bridge that was moved here and shortened, and in this process the original portal bracing was removed, turning the sway bracing of a former interior panel point into a portal bracing.

The details of the bridge suggest it dates to the 1880s or 1890s. The bridge is listed as a contributing structure to the Wappingers Falls Historic District and is noted as dating to ca. 1887.

The bridge appears to be off-system, perhaps owned by whoever manages the industrial park north of the bridge. Dimensions given are estimates.
