This attractive truss bridge is noted for its fairly long 308 foot main span length. It is this span length that gives the bridge's trusses their impressive height over the roadway. The bridge also retains good historic integrity with no major alterations, with the exception of the removal of the portal bracing knees.
There has been talk of demolishing and replacing this bridge. This would be a most unfortunate decision, as there is nothing physically wrong with the bridge. If a wider bridge is desire, this bridge could simply be left standing for pedestrians next to a replacement bridge. There is plenty of room here for two bridges.
