Significance: The Coverts Crossing Bridge consists of two bridge segments, as it combines a reused bridge with a new one. It is a significant example of a metal truss bridge because it exhibits transitional technology with its use of steel, cantilevering, and two kinds of joinery methods. Both pin and rivet connection techniques are in evidence on this bridge.
