Bridge Documentation

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

This bridge is a small pony truss. The trusses themselves are unaltered, however steel stringers have been added above the floorbeams to carry the load of traffic. The builder of this bridge is unknown, but it uses a variety of pin and nut for the connections that was used frequently by the Groton Bridge Company of Groton, New York, so the bridge may have very well been built by that company.

Another historic truss bridge was once located on the next road south of this bridge, but it was unfortunately replaced before it could be fully photo-documented. A before and after photo of that bridge is shown before. With a length of 55 feet and a span of 51 feet, the bridge was built in 1904 and was an early example of a rivet-connected pony truss bridge.
