Non-functional truss

View Exhibit map

This category is designated for Truss bridges where by either modification or "rehabilitation", the Truss has been rendered non-functional in a load-bearing capacity, and is only responsible for its own weight. While this is much more common on covered bridges, historic metal truss bridges have also been subjected to this fate.
