Description 

This old bridge is a collection of different span lengths and sizes. Most of the bridge is steel girder construction, but the south end has a short concrete approach. There is one short skew span on the south end. This bridge effectively cuts the BNSF container yard into two, as the container unloading equipment is too tall to pass underneath.
