This unique bridge is noted for its curved span arrangement and for its extremely heavy skew. The bridge is skewed to the extent of two entire panels of truss. The skew is so extensive that there are vertical posts for supporting the sway bracing that is positioned beyond end posts, making portions of the bridge appear as though they have vertical end posts (although these vertical beams are not the end posts, and serve only to support the sway bracing). The bridge started to be built in 1941, and work was stopped due to World War II, the bridge was not completed until later in 1946, and it was opened in 1947. Lengths given are very rough estimates. At one time, there was another bridge next to this bridge to the south. The piers of this previous bridge remain.
