Hulser Road Bridge
Posted April 6, 2007, by Nathan Holth

The unusual connection detail at the end post, including the shaped plates around the pin, and the use of large bolts to attach the diagonals is strikingly similar to inclined endpost Pratt pony truss bridges built by the Wrought Iron Bridge Company. This bridge may also be a product of that company.
