- Braced chain (stiffened-eyebar) design often espoused by Gustav Lindenthal. ONF (an article by Lindenthal) refers to this as the Jefferson Ave. bridge while Fowler's book (IEA) calls it "Grand Avenue". AAJ describes it as "a three-hinged inverted arch with two stiffened chains, one on each side."
