That is in interesting truss-esque bridge. (IMO it is not a true truss because some of the structural shapes are not triangles.) Maybe somebody can identify it and explain.

It is inevitable for me to ask: Where is the water ?, and the photograph NÂș395060 immediately comes to mind.

Hey Dave, it looks a lot like what is called a Baltimore truss (with some additional horizontal bracing) which is sometimes considered to be a modification of the Pratt truss, except in this case with diagonals of alternating direction as in what is called a Warren with verticals. There are at least half a dozen different styles of trusses employed in bridges, some more common than others. A couple of quotes from History of Bridges dot com, "Pratt truss: has vertical members and diagonals that slope downward to the center. It is a variant commonly used for railroad bridges." & "Baltimore truss: made like Pratt truss but it has additional bracing in the lower section of the truss which prevents buckling in the compression members."
