This massive pony truss sits in downtown Wauwatosa, an upscale suburb of Milwaukee.
The bridge is a heavy built 8 panel riveted Warren Pony Truss, which appears to have the engineering of 2005 instead of 1905.
The bridge of course is 1905 authentic, and was engineered very well by the Pennsylvania Steel Company.
It sits on concrete abutments, which state a date of 1909. This date implies the bridge was likely stored by the Milwaukee Road or the fabricator, and was installed at this time.
There are three trusses, one of which is between the tracks. This creates a very heavily built bridge, which is the unique feature.
The author has ranked this bridge as being moderately significant, due to the truss design.
The angles are hard to find, as the bridge is too long to be shot from the pedestrian bridge. An attempt at this angle is seen above.
