Summary

Significance: Built in 1884 in the crossroads town of Bevington, this wagon bridge consists of a pin-connected through truss, with iron cylinder piers and timber stringer approaches. This 102-foot channel span features typical 1880s Pratt configuration and pin-connected detailing. Bevington Bridge is significant as one of the last remaining examples in Madison County from what was once an extensive group of 19th century trusses, a well-preserved illustration of wrought iron truss construction.
Survey number: HAER IA-37
Building/structure dates: 1882 Initial Construction
