This rather substantial riveted Pratt pony truss is a state standard bridge that crosses Cow Creek just east of Perry.
Built in 1927, this bridge features a concrete deck and a short steel stringer approach span at its east end. The wide deck and substantial riveted 80-foot mainspan are typical products of the early state highway engineer's office. The view below looks west.
Above, another view from the deck. Below, the Inland Steel mark fount on the channel of the upper chord.
Above, channels are mitered where they join at the hip. Below, bridge almost melts into its late winter surroundings.
