This is a gorgeous through arch bridge with enormous decorative concrete structures at each end over the abutments. It is a central feature of the Taconic State Parkway, which is itself a historic roadway.

In 1972, it was paired with a deck truss bridge, creating a one-way couplet with this bridge carrying northbound traffic.
