This bridge is an impressive railway deck truss bridge that includes a series of "tower and girder" style approach spans at each end. At the south end, the bridge passes over a mill race.
A trail runs along the mill race right next to the river, however (at least when leaves are on the bushes) the bridge (and even the river) is very difficult to see due to heavy overgrowth along the river.
The broken remains of a Dominion Bridge Company plaque are on the truss span. The bridge was reportedly built ca. 1890.
The bridge remains in active use by trains. The stone substructure has been supplemented by additional steel beams. The truss was repaired at some point as well, and portions of the temporary shoring used to facilitate these repairs remain in the water underneath the bridge.
