Description 

"The 2-span bridge is composed of riveted 5-panel Warren with verticals pony trusses supported on concrete-capped random ashlar abutments with wingwalls and a concrete pier. A concrete toe wall was added to the pier in 1984. The bridge exhibits no unusual construction details. The verticals and diagonals are laced angles. Repairs are minimal, but the bridge is undocumented both to date and fabricator."
