"The 45-foot long deck plate girder span is probably the earliest of the ten deck plate girder railroad bridges built in Blackstone. A present it consists of five plate girder stringers 4'-7" deep, linked by cross bracing. Four other girders (2 @ 3'-8" and 2 @ 5'-0" deep) have been removed and sit on land adjacent to the bridge. The bridge is adjacent to the Blackstone station site and may have carried a side track or portions of the station platform."
