This nine panel bridge's design features trusses that rising to thirty feet above the deck, making it an impressive and beautiful structure to view and cross. Thanks to Frederick County's exceptional commitment to historic truss bridge preservation, this bridge remains in use and in good condition.
This bridge is the only pin-connected Parker truss in the county, and as such as heightened local significance for this reason. Further significance is gained from the fact it has the longest span length of the historic bridges in the county. It also retains good historic integrity, with only the deck stringers nsd original railings having been replaced. A few rivets were replaced with bolts at the connections as well.
With a 1908 construction date, this bridge is a relatively late example of a pin-connected truss bridge. By this period riveted connections were rapidly becoming the most common connection type on truss bridges.
