Ontario is noted for an unusually large population of subdivided double-intersection Warren through truss bridges, compared to other provinces and the United States. At the same time, that does not mean the actual number of examples is high, indeed they remain uncommon and surviving examples that retain integrity are significant. This bridge is a relatively short example of the design, and it does appear to retain good historic integrity. This bridge is noted for its unusual, minimalist portal bracing, less extensive than the substantial lattice found on other examples. This bridge's portal bracing has the appearance of a narrow A-frame style portal bracing with the bottom beam of the traditional a-frame design missing.
