Additional Information: Michael contacted HistoricBridges.org and reports that one of the abutments of the Stanley line bridge has the words (Grant Bridge 1932) stamped into it. As of 2022, the bridge has a new metal grate deck, although the bridge was not repainted like the nearby Pretty Road Bridge. In either case, the work shows an attention toward maintaining this bridge rather than demolishing and replacing it. It would be great to see this bridge painted like Pretty Road Bridge as well!
This bridge is a classic example of a Warren pony truss. It unfortunately has had its railings replaced with modern Armco guardrails, resulting in the only modification to the original truss structure. The deck and abutments are concrete. There is v-lacing on some diagonals on the bridge. The top chord is slightly unusual in that there is nothing on the underside of the top chord spanning the sections of steel in the built-up chord. Usually you will find v-lacing, lattice, or batten plates. The superstructure lacks paint, but is in otherwise good condition. The deck is in fair shape, although the curbs have fallen away in some places.
This bridge is tagged with the following special condition(s): Unorganized Photos
