I agree and will revise. It would be helpful to have photo(s) of the Petroleum truss bridge.

This is the State Street Bridge, a beautiful three-span, three-lane bridge replaced approximately 1990. The Petroleum Street Bridge was a slightly smaller bridge with two different sized spans, a few blocks away from this one. It was replaced around 1995. I think my dad has pictures of both, I might be able to upload one day.
