Built in 1947, this Parker pony truss has a span length of 80 feet and 3 approach spans. The view above, looking south, and the view below, looking north from the approach spans, give a general idea of the bridge and its setting.
Above, the Illinois steel mark on the endpost. Below, a close view of the truss. Note the lattice type railing. This bridge uses many outdated construction features when compared to other contemporary structures, such as built-up web members and lattice railing, so the possibility exists that this was a span re-used from an earlier structure, or continued post-war materials shortages dictated these earlier methods be used.
