This bridge is a traditionally composed pin-connected Pratt through truss. The truss contains six panels, and there is a single stringer approach span. With a-frame portal bracing and no unusually distinctive details, the bridge stylistically dates to the later period of the pin-connected truss bridge era, and as such a construction date of c. 1905 seems appropriate. The more recent history of this bridge includes vehicular impact damage that bent a vertical member, and also appeared to result in a section of the bottom chord sagging somewhat. Following this damage, repairs were conducted, including but not limited to plates being welded to the damaged vertical member. These repairs made the bridge safe and in decent overall condition once again. With its attractive appearance and historic value as a surviving representative example of a once-common structure type, as well as carrying traffic on a road with a low average daily traffic of thirty, this bridge deserves to be preserved
