Tainter Lake Bridge
Does this really look like a superstructure that should be rated "serious"? Seriously.

This bridge is hard to classify as far as truss type, as it is not quite a Pennsylvania truss and it is not quite a subdivided Warren truss, although it has characteristics of both. The center of each truss has the Pennsylvania truss configuration, and the sides have the subdivided Warren configuration. Any ideas or comments?
