For some reason, this bridge does not appear listed in the Historic Bridge Inventory, otherwise I would have had more info to offer for this bridge. All I know is the township plans to scrap it out in a matter of months.

There is a decent enough bird's eye view of this bridge on Bing Maps to tell that this is a small Warren pony truss.
