This bridge is an early and visually pleasing example of a highway over highway grade separation. The bridge is in line with a nationwide trend in the 1930s where a number of large cities begain producing limited access highways and parkways by limiting the number of intersections through the use of grade separations. The bridge is attractively designed structure with its curved t-beam superstructure, piers, and original concrete balustrade railings. The bridge today retains excellent historic integrity with no major alterations. The bridge is listed as a six span bridge, but some of the spans appear to be somewhat hidden, in particular the span east of the spans over the traffic lanes looks like an abutment but is hollow on the inside (not the doorway in the photos) and is actually one of the bridge spans.
