This bridge is extremely unique and I haven't seen another quite like it! The verts and diagonals appear to be paired angles...rigid but light. The upper chord is really bizarre and appears to be at least 2 angles and possibly a piece of flat stock used to make a "Z" channel.
This one needs to find it's way into a park in Payola before it is lost!
Nick you certainly have taken the road less travelled! Hope the journey was fun thanks for sharing and HAPPY BRIDGEHUNTING!
This is a very interesting bridge. It is very lightweight with tiny gusset plates.
Sadly, it is also in danger of collapse. Such is the case with so many abandoned bridges.
Visited today with my wife, via permission from Pearl St. business owner. A beauty, will never forget this hunt
Pint - sized inriggers! I like it!
Yup, I think you are correct Mr. Elder! But it's the pint-sized ones like we have here in the Hoosier State... Not them big crazy looking ones like they have North of here! ;-)
Based on the KHRI image, I think that this one has inriggers as well.
It is an interesting little bridge overall.

Let's hope so. If you are able to obtain access, it would be great to have pictures on here.
