This is an attractive warren pony truss bridge seated on stone abutments. It features no v-lacing or lattice, instead relying on simple battens for its built-up truss members. The bridge was rehabilitated. Like a number of projects in the county, the historic integrity of the trusses themselves was maintained very well, but the flooring system was replaced. The end result is a bridge that can continue to serve vehicular traffic, and retains an overall historic appearance, but with a slight loss to overall historic integrity.
One highly unusual and interesting feature of this bridge is that the builder plaque on the bridge is upside down. Perhaps this is because the plaque was attached in the factory, and when the bridge was assembled on-site it was possible for the end post to fit equally either end up, and the workers didn't check the plaque to see if they were setting the endpost on the bridge right side up.
