Description: Missouri River Bridge, Chamberlain. These through trusses show how complex the geometry of a large bridge truss can become. Careful study shows X-bracing in all except the end panel. Horizontal members in the plane of the truss at mid-height are to stiffen the verticals. (Chamberlain, So.Dakota)
