This is an unusual small-scale vertical lift bridge, and the lift span is visually overpowered by the larger through truss approach spans. The lift span is a simple through plate girder. The lift towers are structurally integrated with the fixed through truss approach spans. There also are a series of concrete t-beam approach spans. The southern approach to this bridge is curved. The unusual design means that the main span is not the longest span on the bridge. The lift span is about 70 feet, while the flanking approach truss spans are 200 feet each.
