This bridge is a good representative example of a state-design through truss bridge. Virginia's design of polygonal Warren through truss bridge is unusual in that it has no vertical members where the diagonal members connect to the bottom chord. It only has verticals where the diagonal members meet the top chord. This gives the bridge an unusual appearance with long sections of top chord and a panel point where sway bracing and upper lateral bracing meet the top chord at a point where there is no vertical member present. This bridge is an old highway alignment that terminates at nearby I-64, and is thus today a dead-end road at a residence, with a newer bridge nearby handling through traffic.
