This long railway bridge has an unusual appearance since half of the river spans are trusses and the other half are plate girders. Even more unusual is that the span lengths between girders and truss are about the same. It is possible that the bridge was originally all truss spans and some of the truss spans were replaced with girder spans. However, if this is the case, the replacement happened a long time ago because the plate girder spans are riveted and not modern. Portions of the bridge date to 1938, as this date appears on a concrete pier, but it is not known if the entire bridge dates to this year.
