This location is reportedly called Five Points because of five
bridges that once crossed here. The actual bridges and the actual number and
exact location of bridges have changed over time. If you include a pipeline and
a bridge a bit south of the main group, there are still five bridges here.
Unused piers of a former bridge remain at the location today. Today, there is a
modern highway bridge here, a riveted plate girder railroad bridge, the
non-historic pipeline bridge, the aforementioned railroad bridge a bit south of
the main group, and finally this bridge which is the one closest to the highway
bridge. It is a through truss bridge with only four panels. The truss retains
good historic integrity, but it appears that the approach system and all bents
have been replaced.
