This concrete arch bridge with railings and arch
superstructure that are both attractively designed was built to replace a wooden
structure at this site.
The arch superstructure has received a number of repairs. The
historic bridge inventory reports that the arch ribs had significant repairs.
The spandrel columns, at one time badly cracked, have either been replaced or
extensively repaired, which included a protective wrap placed around the
columns. While all these repairs have undoubtedly reduced the historic integrity
in terms of original materials extant on the bridge, these repairs appear to
have maintained the same overall appearance and design that the bridge
originally had. Repairs such as these are often deemed as acceptable as methods
to preserve a historic concrete arch bridge.
