Found an article with builders for this one: https://www.newspapers.com/newspage/486811626/
Amendment to the previous comment: The bridge was likely built post 1935, as this still from a USGS report about a flood shows a two span Pratt:
Thank you guys! I told Melissa something looked off and I was actually trying to find one of those to compare with. Not a type I am very familiar with for sure!!
Oh I love the thought of it being inundated but I believe it was removed.
Okay, I guess the article mentioned that the bridge would be removed. Too bad. There are only two Kansas cantilevers left to the best of my knowledge. One in Kansas, and one in Nebraska.
The Republican River is large enough here that a Kansas cantilever would make sense. there used to be one a little farther downstream near Junction City. I drove across it a few times in the late 90s before it was replaced.
I concur that that's a Kansas Kantilever.
I suspect that this might have been a Kansas cantilever. there is even a remote chance that it might still be extant under the water.
