Bridge Documentation

This bridge features a main span that was replaced in 1949, while the approach spans remain original, dating to 1899. The reason for the replacement of the main span was because of destruction from a flood. The bridge has a long timber approach at the east end. At the western end, modern replacement concrete spans are present. The 1949 span is an uncommon variation of a Warren truss due to the "X" panel in the center of the truss.
