Bridge Documentation

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

This is a most unusual bridge because its top chord is not polygonal but is actually made of genuinely curved steel. Curved top chords are common among European truss bridges but are extremely rare in North America. The bridge's unusual design as well as its empty rivet holes on a variety of areas on the bridge like at the end posts suggests this bridge has an interesting story to tell. Unfortunately, that story is unknown at this time. It is quite possible this is not the bridge's original location. Perhaps the National Bridge Inventory 1957 rehabilitation date refers to a relocation? If so, it is not known where it came from, however historical photos of Rochester, New York show a number of bridges with a similar design to this bridge that once crossed a canal. They were vertical lift bridges. Perhaps that might be a hint at this bridge's origin.
