This representative example of a steel stringer bridge is unaltered, intact, and largely original example of a New York State standard for many years. This one includes the tubular green bridge rail, stepped concrete approaches, DPW plaque, sage green steel paint, etc. The only alteration is that the original approach rail was removed. The photo gallery shows where it attached to the concrete steps. Based on that arrangement, the original guard rail was very likely cable, which was replaced by box, box that wasn't attached directly to the bridge like it is in many other locations. The design of this bridge was also used on most of the original throughway bridges. The green rail with the concrete step approaches was an attractive standard for many years, but is steadily disappearing. The road this bridge serves was a major east-west road until the throughway was built. The name of the road, Ridge Road, refers to the Niagara Escarpment which the road roughly follows.
