This bridge is one of five historic metal truss bridges that were saved from demolition when the Sweetgrass Golf Club acquired these former highway bridges and moved them onto the Sweetgrass Golf Course, where they are both functional and beautiful parts of the large golf course. This bridge is located on a pathway that runs between Hole 1 and Hole 2 on the course. Unlike some of the other bridges that sit out in the open on the course, this bridge sits in a less open, somewhat wooded setting on the edge of the course property. The bridge is not far from a nearby highway. The bridge has reportedly been used as a backdrop for wedding photographs in this location.

This bridge is a riveted Warren pony truss that has trusses which show no signs of alterations from its original design.

Bolts on the top chord splice suggest that all riveting for this bridge was completed in the shop, with the bridge shipped to its original construction site with its two truss each in two sections that were bolted together in the field. The use of bolts would have avoided the need for field riveting equipment at the construction site. This bridge's use of bolts is different and less extensive than with the Old US-41 Bridge where the bridge appears to have been shipped with individual truss members all separated, those members all being bolted together at the gusset plates in the field.
