Description 

"The skewed 5-panel 1936 Pratt pony truss bridge is of rolled section welded construction. It is supported on random ashlar abutments. An uncommon detail is the connecting of the center-panel diagonals to a mid-panel gusset plate. Alterations are minimal and include outriggers and guide rail railings."
