This is a small four panel truss bridge that has been rehabilitated and repaired as needed to ensure that this attractive and historic crossing remains in place. In 1995, the bridge was disassembled for cleaning and repair as part of a preservation project. In 2002 a vehicle damaged the bridge considerably, but county officials reacted quickly and had the bridge repaired and reopened within a week, which is an impressive turnaround rate. This bridge features unusual and distinctive railings that may be something unique to the York Bridge Company. The bridge is a late example of a pin-connected truss bridge.
