Here's some other photos I took of the wooden bridge leading to the Barker Bridge (to help clear up any confusion)
The Truss Bridge has not had anything removed. The bridge you see appears to be a Timber Stringer bridge with an asphalt deck on it that crosses a creek on the south side before the Barker Bridge itself.
If you look at the photo, you can see the old road grade leading north. The truss bridge is just around the corner.
This bridge is very old (abandoned since at least the 60s, more than likely, it was abandoned in the early 1950s when Highway 95 was upgraded) and the deck is in very poor condition. I did not try to even walk across it and I would advise anyone from trying to reach the Barker Bridge from the south unless they are looking for this specific bridge.
A second odd thing on this one. How does one remove the trusses while leaving the deck in place?
I am having trouble visualizing what is going on with this member. Is it two angles, and how are they positioned? I would like to see additional detail photos of this built-up beam from a variety of angles to better visualize the layout of this perhaps one-of-a-kind design.
This is indeed a unique member. I have never seen anything like that reversing angle lattice built up section. It must have been in interesting challenge to fabricate.
With apologies to JR Manning, it looks like this is another bridge built by the infamous Two Holes in Span Bridge Co.
