Description
Built in 1912 this historic town lattice truss crosses the Neversink River. A parking lot provides two or three spaces off the road. This bridge has a short timber approach span. The main span is 119 feet. Our visit was on 4/11/98. There is a gauging station just downstream of the bridge.
