This bridge is reportedly the only steel arch highway bridge in Florida. Steel through arch bridges like this one are generally uncommon, especially those dating to before 1970 like this one. This bridge is further unusual because it has three arch lines, providing for two directions of I-95 travel. A series of deck plate girder spans provide an approach to the bridge. The approach spans are configured as pairs of parallel superstructures. After this arch bridge was built, in later years additional ramps and associated concrete bridges were added next to the arch bridge, and these have made it very difficult to photograph the historic bridge, which is already a challenge given it is on an Interstate Highway. HistoricBridges.org's photo collection is somewhat limited as a result. A photo of the builder plaque is not available, however the plaque is a standard American Bridge Company plaque for the period, which included the American Bridge name, the USS (United States Steel) logo, and the construction date.
