This bridge is a traditionally composed example of a highway through plate girder in New York State. It is noted for its association with the R. S. McMannus Steel Construction Company of Buffalo, New York. Other surviving examples of bridges associated with this firm have not been found in New York State. R. S. McMannus was a company that was around at least as early as 1920, when Avery Judson Pratt was listed as the General Manager. After World War II, Avery Pratt's son Wilson Pratt was known to be working for the company, and he later became an owner of the company. Wilson Pratt also had previously worked for the American Bridge Company and Bethlehem Steel, and was a construction engineer for the famous Rainbow Bridge at Niagara Falls. The company was in business at least as late as 1955, when the company was the steel contractor for the Niagara County Building in New York State.
