"F" Street Bridge, Spanning Palouse River, Palouse, Whitman County, WA

description

Summary

Significance: The steel "F" Street Bridge is the last through Pratt truss bridge in the State of Washington. Favored for its simplicity of materials and ease of assembly, the Pratt truss design is representative of a type claimed to have been most commonly used in bridge construction in the early twentieth century for spans under 250 feet in length. The bridge is important locally for the role it played in the agricultural development of the upper Palouse River region, an area encompassing the Washington and Idaho state lines. The bridge was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
