Description 

From Historic Aerials, it appears that this bridge was originally built as a five-span through truss with a lengthy concrete beam approach on the west. In between 1970 and 1982, this approach was replaced with fill, leaving only the five through truss spans. The truss spans were replaced with a steel stringer bridge in 1991. The NBI continues to list this as a 1915 bridge, indicating that the substructure was reused.
