That is an incredibly odd looking bridge. I'd almost think that it was still under construction and some of that was temporary supports, but the bracing makes me think that's unlikely.

I found two photos of a "Newport and Covington Bridge" with no shown date. It was a very unusual cantilever-like bridge. https://cdm16998.contentdm.oclc.org/digital/collection/p1699...
