"The 39-foot plate girder span is the only half-thru plate girder span among the ten plate girder railroad bridges in Blackstone, and the only one to utilize girder-and-floorbeam construction. The three plate girders are each 4'-6" deep, connected by floorbeams which support the track structure . Although the bridge is still in use, the westernmost track has been out of service for a number of years. The bridge is adjacent to the Blackstone station site."
