This bridge is on a section of road that is technically available for public vehicular traffic to use, but is no longer maintained. When HistoricBridges.org visited the bridge, it was not difficult to drive to the bridge from the east. If the bridge continues to be unmaintained, the access to the bridge may become more difficult, however at the same time, this bridge does not have to worry about deterioration due to heavy traffic use. The bridge is unusual because it is missing its original railings, yet no modern railings are present, so the bridge has no railing. Aside from the loss of railings, the truss shows no major alterations. A newspaper article listed the bridge incorrectly as a Bailey truss, and also listed a 1920 construction date. The 1920 date may not be exactly correct, but a ca. 1920 date would not be inappropriate for a bridge of this style.
