I checked it out (its outside of my region, as I try to keep myself confined to the northeast), and its quite unique...I'm curious as well! It doesn't match any other bowstring/arch styles I've seen, but that doesn't mean too much as we've lost many bridges (and companies), so using our surviving inventory of historic bridges isn't the best measure. If the other example of the Cooper bridge hadn't been preserved we could be having the same discussion about this bridge!
Hopefully someone will eventually recognize a clue about that bridge, it'd be interesting to know its history.
I thought that as well and was looking for the other bridge you posted a link to but couldn't didn't remember the details and couldn't find the link.
PS. Now, can you figure out who did the other bowstring I posted with the 'Warren' or zig-zag tension member arrangement?
Interesting, that looks like a patented design from William B. Cooper. Note the slightly tapered verticals and unique tensioner on the diagonals.
The only extant example is also in the state: http://bridgehunter.com/ny/onondaga/bh49564/
