This through truss, consisting of a Pratt and a Warren span, presents classic configurations of the two truss types. One of the earlier rigid connected vehicular trusses in Wyoming, it presents a transition from the earlier pin connected bridges. It is one of the State's more interesting vehicular trusses.
