This graceful and richly decorated multi-span arch bridge has been rehabilitated and preserved. Despite this preservation success story, little attempt is made to promote the bridge as a tourist attraction: although the parking lot and walkway northeast of this bridge offer spectacular viewing of this bridge, it is signed only as a "fish viewing area" due to the nearby fish ladder. Perhaps the sign should also note that there is a historic bridge, and there should also be interpretive signage about the bridge. Currently only the fish are explained! There also is another parking area (paid) at the southwest corner around the bridge, but again no interpretive signage was found.
