This bridge was the replacement for the 1913 suspension bridge which remains preserved for pedestrian use next to this bridge. The two bridges make a comparison in terms of both age and design. Indeed the interpretive signage for the suspension bridge discusses this arch bridge as a comparison. Photos of this sign are included in the photo gallery. Visit the suspension bridge page for photos of more interpretive signs.
The north abutment has an unusual cantilevered corner that allows a road to pass under the bridge without the abutment sticking into the roadway.
While not an early example of a steel arch bridge, this arch bridge is today old enough to have some heritage value. The structure type is uncommon and this example retains good historic integrity.
Lengths given for this bridge are rough estimates.
Contractors for the bridge included:
