This is an old example of a pin-connected Pratt truss also noted for its association with Keystone Bridge Company and ornate portal bracing. It is similar to the Aden Road Bridge. However, the Aden Road Bridge has as of 2018 been severely altered and turned into a non-structural decoration. Thus this unaltered bridge has higher significance today.
