View The Historic Bridge Inventory Report For This Bridge

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.
