This bridge is a good example of an open spandrel concrete arch bridge. It is noted for the lack of alteration. Details including the original railings, builder plaque, as well as superstructure and substructure are all in place and unaltered on the bridge.
The bridge is today signed as a one lane bridge with stop signs at each end of the bridge for traffic control.
This bridge was a number of years ago at risk for demolition and replacement. A Historic Property Survey Report produced at that time stated that this bridge was not eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. Today, that questionable finding appears to have been remedied so that the bridge is today considered eligible.
For a number of years this bridge was at risk for demolition and replacement. However local residents showed enough concern for the proposed demolition of this bridge that the bridge was instead rehabilitated and preserved, with the project complete as of 2017. A photo gallery by Justin Kelley shows the bridge after rehabilitation.
