Bridge Documentation

This bridge consists of a riveted Warren through truss swing bridge flanked by similar but shorter fixed truss spans. Leading up to the truss spans are a very long series of approach spans that slowly bring the railroad line up to the crossing elevation. HistoricBridges.org currently only has a few overview photos of this bridge.
