I don't know if there's a "standard" name for this arrangement. If you "chase the loads" it functions like a stringer. If you place a load on the deck between floor beams you have to decide: do the stringers transfer the load through the floor beams down to the piers or up to the truss members. It looks as if they have tried to transfer at least some of the load down, removing load from the truss. One could probably remove the truss without the bridge coming down. Splitting hairs, really; the truss has been preserved.

I don’t see any steel stringers—It looks like the original floor system is still in place and it still functions as a truss, which is good news; however, a center bent support was added at some point to help increase load capacity.

This bridge appears to have been moved to steel stringer with truss decorations. But wanted to get second opinions.
