Apparently this was fabricated from a storage unit from the city jail. (I do not know anything about the storage unit) It was fabricated by Graber Post Buildings from nearby Montgomery Indiana. I got my information from Kip Kelly of the Washington Parks Department.

It looks like riveted trusses with welded floor beams and outriggers. Could it be repurposed roof trusses?

Could the bridge have been moved here? If so, it might actually pre-date 2003. Even if it is modern, it is more interesting than the mass produced MOBs in my opinion.

It shows up after 2003 aerial imagery.

That being said, it's not ugly like the bulky corten MOBs, so I've got no beef with it being on here.

Anyone have anything to add to this? I don't know squat about it. There are a couple more smaller ped bridges in this park.
