Altitude-Miller Road Bridge
Posted October 25, 2016, by Nathan Holth (webmaster [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

The unusually wide (for a rural pin-connected thru truss) suggest this bridge was relocated from an (urban?) location. Further, the Historic Bridge Inventory notes that:

"...is dated ca. 1910 by style/roadway width. The county has no documentation for the builder/year built, and it appears from the substructure that it is likely that the truss was relocated here and being slightly shorter than the old span, required the construction of a concrete pier."
