Civil engineer Wendell Bollman, a pioneer in engineering of iron bridges, built this bridge in 1879 using the Pratt truss design. This is the only bridge over the canal built by Bollman and is one of the few surviving works by him in America. Today, it stands as a testament to 19th century engineering achievements.
