Description 

"The 4-panel welded Warren with verticals pony truss bridge is supported on concrete abutments with wingwalls. The outriggers are skewed to the span. The construction date is undocumented, but it dates technologically and stylistically no earlier than 1935. The floor beams were replaced in 1948, and welded repairs and reinforcements were made in 1953."
