Description 

This modern pony truss bridge was constructed as the replacement for the original Iron Bridge at this location, which was disassembled and placed into storage in 2007. The new modern truss bridge features a Warren truss with alternating verticals configuration, and uses a combination of bolted and welded connections. The new bridge is a one-lane bridge like the original bridge, which is uncommon, but was likely done to save money as Howard Hill Road only serves a few residences and a campground before reaching a dead-end, and is mostly unpaved.
