Description 

from the 2002 survey: "The bridge carries a lightly traveled country road over a minor stream in a wooded setting on the edge of the village of Locktown. An 18th century meeting house and 19th century school house are within sight of the bridge, but not close enough to be evaluated as part of any potential historic district."

"The undocumented ca. 1920 riveted Warren with verticals pony truss bridge is supported on one stone abutment and one concrete. The built-up box top chord and end posts are composed of channels turned toe in with cover plate. The original pipe railings remain. Alterations include bolted extensions of floor beams. The bridge was moved from Lambertville when the 1899 WIBC Pratt pony truss at this crossing was lost."
