Sources list this as a Kennedy built span, but I'm skeptical of it.
They did build a few Howe trusses but preferred the Burr, which they did use in the county on the Roberts Bridge. Also the exterior looks nothing like one of their trademark structures, and the only case I know of that happening was on the "No frills" Old Nellie Railroad Bridge.This one was one of a few built in the county that was referred to as a "Birdhouse Bridge" due to the large hole at the top of the portal.
