This bridge is noteworthy as an example of the Rochester Bridge and Construction Company. Few bridges built by this company remain. By the way, the Historic Bridge Inventory's finding that there are 16 pin connected truss bridges in the county is far outdated, as the number is much smaller and shrinking rapidly.

Discussion of Surrounding Area
The 1904, pin connected, 61'-long, Pratt pony truss bridge with the floor beams above the lower chords is supported on ashlar abutments with flared wingwalls. The bridge has built up upper chords, and verticals. The lower chords and diagonals are eye bars. The bridge is a late example of a common technology and it has no distinctive details. Sixteen pin connected truss bridges ranging in date from 1880 to 1904 remain in the county. Earlier examples represent the significance of the technology.
