Location is correct. Bridge is called Mono Hot Springs Bridge. In my knowledge, it's just a Bailey pony truss.

Additionally, the NBI gives "Winding Road" as the generic name for several roads in the Sierra National Forest.

I imported NBI from pin location. May not be correct.

A two-span bridge will have a gap between spans to allow for thermal expansion.

There's no gap, so it's more than likely a single span with additional support.

I'd have considered that 2 span, do you consider it single span because it's continuous at the pier rather than pinned?

I agree that it at least resembles a Bailey.

Looks more like a single-span Bailey-pattern truss with a support pier at the midpoint.

The NBI data doesn't seem to match this bridge.

This is a 2 span bridge, while the NBI info has span length and total length within a foot of each other.

NBI states that it has a wooden wearing surface, the pictures show a wooden deck with steel wearing surface on top.

NBI states that it's on Winding Road/05S01, google maps shows Edison Lake Road.

Are you sure that's the right bridge?
