This bridge is an excellent example of a pin-connected through truss bridge.
It is also a unique glimpse at an otherwise long-lost bridge. This bridge was
relocated and preserved here as the main entrance to a residential community.
The bridge originally came from the former
Jenks Bridge, which was
composed of many spans of this same design and size. That Jenks Bridge was
replaced with the pony truss bridge that stands today bypassed and preserved for
pedestrian use. Being as the pony truss was built in 1948, the span most likely
was relocated here in 1948, or sometime soon after.
