Description 

"The skewed 3-panel pin-connected half hip Pratt pony truss is supported on ashlar abutments with wingwalls. Loop forged eye rods form the bottom chord. Floorbeams are original. Welded additions and repairs including additional diagonals and bottom chord members, and plates welded to panel points mar the original design and type."
