A typical example of Pratt truss construction, the 150-foot-long, single span Catoctin Creek Bridge was once numbered among scores of similar structures, but is now one of the last through-truss metal bridges in northern Virginia. Department of Transportation records state that it was constructed in 1925 by the Variety Iron Works of Cleveland, Ohio. It was originally located on Route 7 spanning Goose Creek in Loudoun County. The bridge was dismantled and moved to its present location in the county around 1932, where it now serves a tree-shaded, unpaved country lane bordered by well-tended estates.
