The bridge's lightweight truss composition of angles and double-Warren configurations is reminiscent of a variety of trusses that were marketed in the early 20th Century as an alternative to heavier (and more expensive) trusses of more traditional design. An example is the Powers Highway Bridge. However, the bridge has some unique details that are unlike those bridges. First, the overall truss has an extreme camber, or curved shape to it, which is followed by the deck as well. This gives the bridge a somewhat arched shape. Also, the ends of the bridge feature a curved design, where the top chord smoothly transitions into a vertical end post. At the ends of the trusses, there is a section of plate with patterns of holes in it that form decorative flower-like shapes. Aside from the addition of an unsightly cyclone fence, this bridge appears to retain good integrity. It rests on stone abutments. It is not known when it was built, or who built it. It is however a rather unique bridge.
