This bridge is an attractive example of a double-intersection Warren through truss. Perhaps the most noteworthy aspect of this heritage bridge is that it is a rural heritage truss bridge that has been rehabilitated, something that is sadly uncommon in Ontario. However, this bridge does have a bright future. The bridge received a comprehensive rehabilitation that is intended to extend the service life of the bridge for another 40 years. An unusual attention to detail appears to have been paid to the rehabilitation of this bridge. The best example of this is that the ends of the v-lacing bars on the members of the truss were observed to have been caulked, presumably to keep moisture from getting into where the lacing lays on the angles. This would help to prevent pack rust.
