With the arch-like shape formed by the Parker truss configuration, this is an attractive looking pin-connected truss bridge located in a highly rural location. Despite its rural location and how little traffic it carries,
the bridge has a lot of alterations, making the bridge's historic integrity fairly low. The portal bracing has been replaced with a modern, bolted substitute. Added bracing runs from the portal bracing to the top chord. The end post has
bolted alterations including added plate. Some diagonal members have either been replaced or had an additional member added.
