Bridge Documentation

This is a two span pin connected Pratt through truss. Each span is composed of eight panels. An 1899 date was reported by someone posting a photo of the bridge online. As such, the date is not really confirmed, but seems plausible given the design of the bridge. It is a pin-connected bridge, but has the heavy members that dominated the rivet-connected truss bridges that would be built in the early 20th Century. The bridge carries one set of railroad tracks across the Maumee River, and is the first railroad bridge to cross the Maumee River after the St. Marys and the St. Joseph River meet in Fort Wayne to form the river. The bridge features v-lacing on its vertical members, and lattice under the top chord.
