Pony Truss Bridge

Pony Truss

Today I found out what exactly a pony truss is. I had heard the term before, but never understood what it meant.In fact, it is quite simple. A pony truss is a truss bridge which allows traffic through the truss, but the top of the bridge is not joined together with cross braces.

Example of a real pony truss bridge:

Any truss bridge can be a pony truss. But not many are being made anymore (if any?), so chances are small that you will actually see one. Thanks to Historic Bridges of Iowa for this tip.

    Actually, Pony truss bridges are still being made and build, just most of them are secondary road that most do not travel. It also depends in the climate and what state you at in, and of course, your state’s designer.
