Description 

This bridge is a modern bridge, but has a very interesting design. I put Warren Through Truss just because that is the only thing I could think of that would come close.

Claremont Sugar River Pedestrian Bridge
Posted September 8, 2011, by Ben Tate

It seems to lack the "W" shaped girders that a Warren has though. It looks more like a Pratt through truss to me. It appears to start out as a through truss with the top curving down, meeting the railing, and then curving back up. As the top curves down closer to the rails, the overhead beams disappear. Strange.
