Bridge Documentation

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.
