Thanks for the info on Wisconsin bridges. I'll visit them later in Eau Claire. On another note, there is another one on the California army base near the entry road that crosses the San Antonio River. I don't know if you're aware of this one. You need to prove citizenship and auto insurance to go on the property.

Google maps has a couple of photos of the truss bridge.

This bridge and the very nearby Little Cholame Creek Bridge are visually identical. The dimensions and design are identical and yet the data on this website indicates one was built in 1910 and one in 1915. More research might be warranted.
