The overhead bracing is not original. At first, I thought it was a replacement for original bracing. Then I noticed the bridge is configured as a Half-Hip Pratt. Then I found the NRHP Nomination... If the NRHP nomination (attached) is accurate, this bridge was originally a pony truss! Never heard of a half-hip pin connected pony truss of this span length.
