It is a three-span, steel plate, through girder bridge with a skew of 64 degrees and a main span length of 164 feet. Bridge 27956 is significant for its complexity in design. The bridge was designed with an extreme degree of skew for a railroad bridge and at the outer limits of the span length for its type in order to meet challenging site conditions.
