Here is another significant Coös County Bridge. This is quite early for a fully riveted truss bridge, a testament to the innovative nature of the Boston Bridge Works. Its certainly among the oldest riveted bridges nationally. Its also a very early (oldest extant?) example of a Baltimore truss. Tied together, these two facts make this bridge historically and technologically significant.
Aside from that though, its quite a visually appeasing bridge. All members are built up boxes on the truss web, giving it a airy and intricate look. Given the light traffic of the NHCR this bridge should be safe for the time being
