Bridge Documentation

This is one of the oldest rivet-connected truss bridges in the country, and was built by Boston Bridge Works, a company that specialized in rivet-connected truss bridges. Most of the earliest surviving rivet-connected truss bridges in America were built by Boston Bridge Works. The bridge retains original ornamental sidewalk railing. The end posts and top chord are built-up beams featuring rare corrugated lacing sometimes called ribbon lacing.
