This bridge is a rare example of a pin-connected Baltimore
highway truss bridge. It originally had a pony truss approach span at each end.
The bridge was replaced around 1886, the pony truss spans were
demolished, and the Baltimore truss was left standing with its deck removed.
While it is commendable that the rare Baltimore truss was not destroyed, it
would have been nice to see the pony truss spans left in place. Additionally, it
would be nice to move to step two today and preserve the bridge, perhaps by
relocating and reusing it for pedestrian use on a trail or in a park. The truss
is in good condition and retains excellent historic integrity.
