Description 

"The 3-panel pin-connected half hip Pratt pony truss bridge is supported on random ashlar abutments. It is traditionally composed and exhibits no unusual details. Alterations are minor and include welded additions to the bottom chord eye bars, a new floor system, and outriggers. One of several pony truss spans built in the county by the local Dover Boiler Works before 1919"
