This bridge is a Parker truss that features ten panels. The top chord runs parallel to the bottom chord for four panels, making this bridge look similar to some Camelback truss bridges. The bridge retains original lattice railings, and overall appears to retain good historic integrity. The paint on the bridge is beginning to show signs of rust. Now would be a great time to restore this bridge so it can continue to carry light vehicular traffic for the decades to come.
