"The South Amherst (ca. 1895) Bridge is very similar to the Southern Vermont (1906) Bridge, however it does not have verticle members. The South Amherst (ca. 1895) Bridge was donated to the university by a private owner. This structure originally served as a highway bridge in Northfield Massachusetts. The bridge has undergone a trial assembly at the University. An angle member on the bottom chord of the bridge is moderately corroded and must be replace before this bridge is put into use. Additionally, this bridge currently requires a deck and a safer guard rail before it can be put into use on campus."
Note: The posted GPS Coordinates give the location of the UMass Amherst Campus only. One would have to contact the university to get specific directions to the current location of the bridge.
