Dana, from what I've been able to uncover, 1981/2012 were rehab dates for the bridge.

RE: Rail to road
Posted September 12, 2017

Yes, as the bridge's original function was for railroad, not road.

Updated artcle says "Islamorada Fire Chief has said the bridge is “driveable.”"

Posted September 10, 2017

The narrowness suggests RR to me.

Posted September 5, 2017

Douglas, there's a concrete arch at this location, and you're on the Mystic River when the bridge is over the Malden River, which is further east.

This probably was the predecessor to the Woods Memorial Bridge.

Good job on finding more Scherzer brochure images, though.

RE: Worthiness
Posted August 28, 2017

It looks like a trestle with a trough/dispenser that looks like it was adopted from a railroad hopper car.

I've not seen anything like it, so I'd say it's worthy of inclusion.

If https://www.flickr.com/photos/nrhpphotos/21638739776/ is a pic of this bridge, it's a Canton bridge.

Dana, this bridge and https://bridgehunter.com/ia/jasper/north-skunk-creek/ are the same.

Posted August 11, 2017

Switchback Arch was the original name the railroad gave it, and the historic article explains how it functions as a 3-hinge arch: https://books.google.com/books?id=RDUxAQAAMAAJ&pg=PA218&dq=S...

Daniel added this based off of info posted by James Holzmeier, so he listed it as the old Wabash bridge, which was a truss.

But this isn't the Wabash line, and I agree with the assessment that it was a DPG.
