The bridge is a beautiful example of a pin connected truss bridge, specifically the camelback style, having five parts to its polygonal top chord/endpost. It was constructed in 1904. There is v-lacing on the vertical members and under the top chord. Original railings do not remain on the bridge, and have been replaced with modern Armco railings. The deck is currently a metal grate style. The abutments are stone with some concrete repair done to them. Cambria brands were found on the bridge. This bridge was in the 1950 "re-erected" according to a plaque on the bridge. Reportedly, this bridge was relocated from elsewhere to this location in 1950, where it was reused, replacing an old covered bridge. There are some alterations to the structure, particularly the replacement of the floor beams and the deck. The rest of the structure appears to have excellent historic integrity.

In more recent years, this bridge was bypassed by a modern bridge. However, it was not demolished, and was left standing where the bridge continues to be an attractive historic landmark for all to see and visit. The concept of leaving a historic bridge standing next to its replacement might seem like an obvious thing to do, but some states like Pennsylvania, and indeed even other counties in Ohio refuse to do this. Instead, these places waste money and destroy history by demolishing historic bridges that are not in the way of their replacement. This bridge shows that destruction can be avoided.

The Champion Bridge Company was in the bridge business in Ohio for a long time. This is an example of their impressive pin connected era work, having been built in 1904. They however continued to build truss bridges as late as 1964 in Preble County.
