Notes
Survey number HAER NC-36
Building/structure dates: 1921 initial construction
Significance: The bridge is a pin-connected 228' Petit with twelve panels. It is the shortest of the Petit trusses, but retains all the characteristics: subdivided panels, intersecting diagonals, and the missing ties in the second and fourth panels. In addition, the bottom chord is of four-eye bars instead of the usual two that are in most pin-connected through trusses. It was designed as a two-lane bridge; its deck is 24 feet wide. This truss deck is the widest roadbed of any truss built in North Carolina before 1950.
