Built 1910; Bypassed by new bridge in 1997
Pin-connected, 6-panel Pratt through truss
Span length: 98.1 ft.
Notice the bent portal brace, and how the top chord on the left has bent inward. I have examined the bridge and see no impact evidence. It appears to be structural failure.

Intriging scene. Much to think about with the road disappearing on the other side of the bridge. A little more contrast might improve this selection. Blessings, Carol
