This bridge is a traditionally composed example of a through plate girder carrying a highway over a railroad in New York State. The bridge retains good historic integrity with no alterations to the girders noted. Constructed in 1948, this bridge is a late example of its type. While many other earlier and more significant representative examples remain in the state, this bridge does fit in appropriately with the age and riveted design of the nearby Narrowsburg Bridge. New York State is noted for constructing state standard riveted through plate girders on its roads, however it is not known if this bridge was a state highway department effort or a railroad effort. With its vertical rather than curved ends, the bridge is unlike other state standard plate girder spans in New York State that HistoricBridges.org has observed, so perhaps it was a railroad effort.
