A railroad crossing truss bridge. Many of such bridges are beam or girder construction rather than trusses! This (1905) 3-span Warren riveted pony truss carries Knapp Road over the CSXT RR tracks in Portage County and was a common style of overpass bridge built for the railroads in the early 20th century.
