It look like this bridge was a part of a railroad bridge.

It appears to be a post-1931 4-panel standard pony truss that has had the original floor beams all removed, and new ones welded on below the lower chords. You can zoom in and see the original attaching points of both the floor beams and guard rails. Note the way in which it even cantilervers off the piers! It is clearly a remodeled bridge to "fit in" where another span had been.

What a work!
