This is shortest of three bridges on Freeport Avenue SE, all with these regionally unique concrete railings. The abutments are concrete and the deck is a concrete jack-arch deck, a relatively rare type of deck today. The other two Freeport Avenue Bridges date to 1948 and have concrete decks. Jack-arch decks most often date to between 1900 and 1920. It is not known if this bridge might be an older structure that had original railings replaced with these concrete railings in 1948. Modern guardrails have been mounted in front of the original railings. Unlike the other two bridges on this road this structure lacks plaques. The bridge is under 20 feet long and is not technically considered a bridge by the National Bridge Inventory.
