Palisado Avenue Bridge (old)
The Palisado Avenue Bridge is historically and archaeologically significant as an example of a through truss span of the Pratt design. Pratt trusses were originally patented in 1844 and, by the early part of the twentieth century, had become the most popular bridge type for spans up to 150 feet.
