The Perkinsville Bridge
Built over the Verde River was built in 1921.
It is a Pratt through truss bridge.
In Pratt truss bridges, the interior diagonals slope down towards the center, and are under tension. Vertical elements are under compression. In general, if pure tension elements are used in the diagonals (such as eye bars) then crossing diagonal elements may also be needed near the center to accept concentrated live loads as they traverse the span. The Perkinsville Bridge shows down-sloping diagonals and additional crossing, up-sloping diagonals.

So heading to Flagstaff on I-40 east about 5:30 pm from Williams Az. Came to A-1 road turned off seen a forest road # 518 drove that looking for elk. On the map it shows SR 180 not to far off. So we drive it a few miles in came to a mountain loop road we made a right. Drove that to FR # 222 took a right and seen a sign saying SR180 two mile. We came out at the white forestry house the you see after Snow Bowl Road. A this sign for G.A. Pearson. So over all cut out 50 miles and avoided Flag all together.
