This little Warren pony truss bridge carries a private driveway over the Milwaukee River. The exact build date is uncertain, but based on the design of the bridge, it was probably built around 1900-1910. Connections are riveted, and bolted with original square-head bolts. The upper chords are composed of back-to-back angles to form a T-shaped cross section, and they are continuous from bearing to bearing, and are curved at the hips. The concrete deck appears original. The abutments are concrete and are showing some sever scour around the water lines. The bridge has likely been repainted, but otherwise appears unaltered and looks to be in excellent condition. The owner of this house is one of the few luckies out there who gets his own historic bridge for his own use! And, being on a private drive, the bridge is not in immediate danger of demolition.
