Description 

It is not known if the steel girder superstructure of this bridge is original to the railroad or is modern construction for the recreational trail built along the former railroad right-of-way. The stone substructure is almost certainly original (or at least not modern), but the wooden/timber deck is likely modern. Close examination of the details on the girder was not possible, so its age is not known.
