This stone arch bridge is built with a slight incline, which is unusual for a stone arch bridge. Although the superstructure is a stone arch, the railings are concrete balustrades. The bridge continues to be a main artery through town, as it carries US-219, which is testimony to the quality craftsmanship in the structure. Marble plaques remain on the bridge as well.
