Bridge Documentation

This is one of two stone-faced concrete rigid-frame overpass bridges in this area. With a 1950 construction date, this is a later example of this bridge type on a nationwide scale. There is a possibility that this bridge is actually an older rigid frame from before 1935 that was widened in 1950. Looking under the bridge, there is a slight change in dimensions seen halfway through the bridge. Further, a historical photo shows a similar bridge at this location of narrower width in 1935.
