Luke,

That is correct which is why i assume the 1902 date is likely the correct date with a 1907 addition of the girder.

Truss is too heavily built for it to be the 1888 original.

Hyde's 1976 inventory has this as originally built in 1888 rather than in 1902 - except for the girder span, that does date to 1907. That might also be the only part of this that was built by American Bridge Co.
