It is a truss bridge. With an arch for good looks.

Sounds good. If you find out that a bridge has been replaced, restored, or bypassed please let us know.

Hi George. Because Bridgehunter is a privately run website, we don't automatically get status updates. We do try and update bridges as soon as we find out new information though. If you are a contributor here, you can click on the import from NBI button. This will give you the report from the last inspection but it might be as much as 2 years old or even older for abandoned bridges. Normally, James adds this information automatically.

If you want the very latest information then the best way to find out is usually to contact the county, state, city, or township that has jurisdiction over the bridge.
