This bridge is one of a number of bridges built in this area to carry a residential street over the many ravines in the area, thereby maintaining a flat road without steep grades. This bridge features a deck truss main span that follows a double-intersection Warren truss design. The truss configuration and built-up beams that are composed so as to have a flat, plate-like appearance, is similar to bridges built by the railroad company. It is unclear if this bridge's similarity to railroad bridges is a coincidence, or if the deck truss span was a reused railroad bridge or overpass. The bridge includes riveted built-up steel bents to support the truss span. The bridge was saved from demolition following a debate about its future ca. 2003. The bridge was then preserved for pedestrian use. The bridge trusses retain their original design as do the steel bents. Alterations include the replacement of the floorbeams and deck, and the encasement of the lower portion of the steel bents in concrete.
