Description 

Bridge spanning Roger Williams Ave. and the Ten Mile River on the original Boston & Providence mainline. The line became a branch in 1848 when the present-day Northeast Corridor route was constructed between East Junction and Providence Union Station. NRHP docs claim Warren deck truss spans over the river, but it looks more like a deck girder on aerials and street view.
