This bridge is an uncommon example of a multi-span pony truss. It features five pony truss spans. A series of steel stringer span provide an approach to the bridge. The piers and abutments are concrete. Truss bridges usually have metal railings (such as lattice) but this bridge's cantilevered sidewalks have a concrete balustrade railing. The length of the bridge, use of pony trusses (instead of through trusses) and the balustrade railings all combine to give this bridge a much more streamlined appearance than is found with most truss bridges. The bridge retains excellent historic integrity with no major alterations noted. The opening of the bridge was met with a surprising amount of fanfare for a bridge of its size, with ribbon-cutting ceremonies attended by a number of dignitaries including the governor. An article in California Highways and Public Works Magazine featured the bridge and a photo from the article is shown below.
