This bridge features a couple deck plate girder spans that take the bridge over 2nd Level Canal, with a skewed through truss span carrying it over an intersection of roads. The bridge is slightly curved which adds to its significance as a more complex engineering achievement. It is also noteworthy as a product of a prolific regional bridge company.
