Bridge Documentation

This cast iron arch bridge is noted for its abutments which include small cast iron arch spans. The historic integrity of this bridge is very good, despite the heavy traffic which uses it. The ornamental details seen on the cast iron arches are repeated in the interior arch ribs; this is not always the case as sometimes interior arch ribs are of a more simple, utilitarian design.
