Description 

This is a substantial riveted Warren deck truss with verticals. The bridge consists of two large main spans, and it has one approach on each end, which are smaller Warren deck truss spans. The bridge was rehabilitated in 1992 and is in excellent condition. The superstructure has no major rust and no damage, and the substructure appears to be in very good shape with no cracking, spalling, or other deterioration.
