Thematic Nomination: Metal Truss Bridges in Kansas

Constructed in 1925, the Stranger Creek Warren Truss Bridge is nominated as part of the multiple property nomination "Metal Truss Bridges in Kansas." The bridge, while common in design, has all the elements of a Warren truss bridge type. It is a single span with a riveted pony truss measuring 72 feet in length and 21 feet in width. Box-formed poured concrete abutments support the bridge. This type of bridge is one of several truss types historically used in Kansas.
