Lattice Bridge

The Lattice Bridge is a closed Whipple through truss bridge along Lattice Bridge Road over the Genesee River in Allegany County, New York.


The crossing was constructed in 1887 by the Wrought Iron Bridge Company of Canton, Ohio, with the abutments built by William J. Fox, the commissioner of highways, and Phil D. Franklin, the proprietor of the Red gristmill on Caneadea Creek. 2

The closed Lattice Bridge is slated to be restored into a pedestrian-only crossing. 1
