While not very unique being a steel beam span, this bridge does have some interesting features. The East abutment is a mixture of laid-up native sandstone & concrete. Deeper investigations reveal that most likely there was a narrow (~14') truss here that failed in the past. The main clue is old anchor bolts which are present at the corners & they are bent & twisted. Since a lot of Counties didn't have a lot of $$ it appears the bridge was widened & somewhat straightend when the concrete was added. This bridge has suffered from extensive scour on & off for > 10 years - finally the County fixed the NW bank but there is still undermining at the West abutment.
