Left Hand Chute AR 140 Bridge

I can almost envision a somewhat comical (but intense!) exchange between 2 engineers...... one who prefers the Pratt truss configuration..... and the other who favors the Warren.

......And this was the compromise.

This bridge has one of the most unusual truss configurations I've ever seen! A Parker pony at the outside 2 panels at each end, and polygonal Warren in the middle! I like it! :>D

Visited and photographed this bridge on Wednesday, July 9, 2008. Bridge in excellent condition and being well maintained. Easy to photograph at several angles. Heavily travelled.
