Bridge Documentation

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.
