A 1907 GTRS Asset and Track Structures Document lists the spans a 54.5 feet plate girder span and a 162.25 feet truss span, for a total length of 216.75
This bridge features an attractive, traditionally composed heavy-duty riveted truss span for the main span. At the north end of the bridge a single approach span is present. This is a deck plate girder span with a distinctive curved termination of the bottom chord on the southern end only. The curved detail may be because this bridge appears to have been built on the stone substructure of a previous bridge, and the curved design may be to accommodate the design of the stone pier, which may have not matched the desired girder depth.
