The original pony truss bridge in this location, built in the late 19th century, succumbed to age and was replaced, first by a temporary “Bailey” bridge, and now by a more modern bridge, currently under construction. The construction company attempted to remove the original bridge intact, in order to preserve it for historical purposes, but the bridge collapsed, unable to withstand the move.
