Concrete abutments and wingwalls support the single-span Warren pony truss. The largely-bolted structure extends 35' in three panels. Its all-interior verticals are manufactured form a pair of angles riveted together with battens and its diagonals from a pair of laced angles. The I floor beams are bolted to heavy gussets below the lower chord and carry the asphalt-over-timber deck with its 19'9" roadway.
