Wow, love it! The lattice and V-lacing make it look especially amazing! I like the builder plaques too; they are very similar to the ones that were attached to the pony truss approaches on the former Shanley Road Bridge in Elk County, Pennsylvania...interestingly enough, this bridge and the main spans of that bridge were built by the same company, but the approach spans were built by Nelson & Buchanan after they ended their relationship with Pttsburgh Steel...the unique shape must be a Nelson & Buchanan trademark. I wish I had a driveway with a bridge like this for a river crossing!
