Cedar Run Pratt Truss Bridge

This Pratt style truss bridge built by Walker Brothers Contractors from Charles Town, West Virginia, is said to be one of only two like it in the state. It was built in 1900 and it spans 88 feet. It was still being used in 1989 but I'm not sure when the replacement bridge was built and this truss bridge not used anymore.

VDOT tried to give the bridge away in the late 1980s but it seems no one wanted it and luckily they didn't destroy it.

The wood planks are still in good condition and the ashlar stone foundation is still in tact.
