description

Summary

Significance: Virginia Department of Transporation Bridge No. 6051 is a five-panel Pratt through truss bridge 73'-11 1/2" in length. Manufactured by the Keystone Bridge Company of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1882, the structure is a representative surviving example of a popular truss type built to specifications by railroad companies and bridge companies during the 1875-1925 period in Virginia. Relatively inexpensive and easy to manufacture, ship, and erect on site, Pratt metal truss bridges found widespread application on U.S. railroads and highways throughout the last quarter of the nineteenth century and well into the twentieth century.
