Description 

"The skewed 3-panel Warren with verticals riveted pony truss bridge bears on random ashlar abutments with wingwalls. The abutments have concrete caps. The upper railing is pipe, and the lower is welded channel. No welded repairs are apparent. Although well preserved, the bridge exhibits no distinctive details and is just a representative example of a well-represented local type."
