Gale Avenue Bridge
"Newest of 12 double-intersection Warren pony trusses in the MDPW database -- all 12 were built as highway overpasses over the Boston & Albany RR. Double-intersection Warren trusses are not common nationally and pony truss examples, in particular, are quite rare (only 2 other examples, both in Ohio, are presently known)."
