Pin-connected highway truss bridges with the Pennsylvania truss configuration are quite rare. They also are among the most visually appealing, thanks to their complex truss configuration that creates a complex geometric art that is more impressive than in other truss bridge types. This traditionally composed ten panel West Virginia example showcases the beauty of this design quite well. The bridge features steel caisson supports and retains original lattice railings. Marshall County has a relatively large number of truss bridges, including many with a great deal of historic significance yet this bridge stands out as the county's most significant structure due to the rare truss configuration.
