Bridge Documentation

This  very unusually configured riveted deck truss highway bridge was rehabilitated in 2019. The bridge is unusual because it features a central anchor span, with short cantilever arm trusses extended toward the ends of the bridge, which in turn hold a half-stringer span. The Baltimore truss configuration is also rare.
