Very unique design on a steel pass-through truss bridge. Third photograph shown indicates without a doubt there was a much longer pass-through truss on the west side of the bridge across the main stream. This is indicated by all the new cement work done. All wood railroad trestle still remains on the east end. Without a doubt, still a beautiful bridge.
