Yeah, it is pin connected. My guess is that 1951 is probably a rehab date or the date that it was moved here... the NBI is not always as helpful as it is in other situations. I'd guess late 1920s as an overall build date maybe?

This does not seem to be an especially old bridge, but it does seem to be very old-fashioned, including what looks like pin connections. Could it have been moved from elsewhere?

I grew up nt far from this bridge. My friends and I use to be able to drive across this bridge when we where teenagers. The nick name to this bridge was "cry baby bridge".
