Bridge Documentation

This is one of the best and richly ornamented examples of a Phoenix column pony truss bridge in the country. The retains features often missing from other such bridges, including ornamental sidewalk railings (although the sidewalk deck has been removed), finials, and builder plaque. The bridge has been preserved in place for pedestrian use only. A new highway bridge is located to the south.
