This bridge has the appearance of a rare pony truss bridge that displays vertical endposts. However a closer inspection of the bridge, which revealed empty holes (for rivets) at the end of the top chord suggests that this bridge was originally a traditional pony truss with inclined endposts that was shortened at each end before being placed in its current location. It is not known where the bridge originally was located. Here at this location, there are old abutments that sit on an offset to the current abutments. This suggests that the project that installed the truss here was a project that sought to straighten out a crooked road alignment.
