This bridge is an interesting bridge with its variety of spans including a rare plate girder swing span. The swing span which no longer opens for boats would have been hand-turned. For a swing bridge, this bridge sits a fair distance above the water level. It is a reminder that tall steam boats used to use this river. Interestingly, the through truss approach spans for this bridge are much longer than the main span length, the main span being the swing span. The bridge also has some smaller fixed deck plate girder approach spans. The bridge rests on stone piers. The bridge appears to retain excellent historic integrity.
The lengths given for this bridge are rough estimates.
