This bridge is a traditionally composed example of an early 20th Century railway truss bridge. It sits on concrete piers and abutments. It was built in 1905 to replace a previous bridge, which was built in 1882. The 1882 bridge was a four span pin-connected Pratt through truss bridge built by the Toronto Bridge Company of Toronto, Ontario. The bridge sat on stone piers and abutments. The 1905 bridge was the site of a rear-end train collision. The bridge survived relatively undamaged. In the 1990s, the bridge was altered to accommodate double-stack containers on the railway. These alterations appear to have replaced the knee braces for the portal bracing and struts.
