NYC - Mohawk River Bridge
Said to be the first wrought-iron lattice truss bridge in the US, designed by Howard Carroll. Described in sources as a "double-intersecting Howe."
Originally a two-track crossing with two light outside trusses with one heavy center truss. The 1889 rebuild appears to have resulted in a new double-intersection Warren deck truss track 1, while the outside trusses were combined and paired with the heavier center truss for track 2. This configuration may or may not have lasted until the construction of the present-day deck girder structure.
