It sure looks like it was intended to be lifted.
The three middle gusset plates may have been pre-punched and never had anything riveted to some of the holes.
It makes me think some shop was turning out prefab heavy bridges for railroad use.
There is something fishy about this bridge. Its missing counter diagonal members, there are gusset plates with nothing attached at those points. I see lifting hooks welded to the end posts. Was this bridge moved? Was it really built in 1950?
