This bridge is a heavily skewed through plate girder overpass. It is supported by steel bents that feature built-up beams with attractive lattice on them. There are also decorative curved brackets at the top of the supports. A steel stringer approach span is present at each end of the bridge. The abutments are of concrete. A very heavily faded Grand Trunk name is visible painted on the girder. No plaque is present on the bridge. There is 10 foot 9 inches clearance signage posted for this bridge.
The below historical photo was listed as the Upton Avenue Bridge. If true, the riveted bracing for the bents is not original, although it is old enough that it is riveted and does not have the appearance of an alteration.
