Two abutments and two ashlar piers. Shelf on abutments and pier height suggests a deck plate girder.
1914 map shows Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul RR. This line moved to a more north alignment in 1930. By 1942 the original alignment shows as a spur from northeast of town to (coal?) mines on the SW edge of town.
