....and a rating of over 55. What a waste. On a side note, Iíve tried to find the history of this bridge. The only Edge Moor structure on the Santa Fe that could be a match was in Oklahoma. Unfortunately, I do not have the documents to be able to confirm or deny this.

Looking at the last inspection report and the 25 ADT count, and all I can say is what a ridiculous waste of money! And the loss of a beautiful truss!!

Very sad, this was definitely an interesting bridge with some history to it.

It may be a case where double tracking led to it being moved from just to the SW over Big creek.

Yes. Another clue is the "crash bar" which is the diagonal member halfway up the end post.

I am attaching the Historic Bridge Inventory sheet which has some basic info.

Bridge looks like it may have originally carried a railroad, now carrying a road. Narrowness and the portal bracing seem to hint at this.
