Bridge Status: This heritage bridge was demolished in 2019!
This bridge is a single span pony truss that is located
downstream from two crossings that are through truss spans. Since rivers
generally grow as they flow downstream, and through truss bridges are used for
longer spans, it is evident that this bridge is both a relatively long example
of a pony truss bridge, and appears to also perhaps cross the river at an
unusually narrow location. Despite its relatively long span length, the bridge
is an example of a light weight pony truss bridge, with built-up beams composed
largely of angles as opposed to channels as found on more massive truss bridges.
