This bridge was originally a railroad bridge, however in 2000, the bridge was converted for vehicular use. At that time, a through truss span was removed. The bridge sits directly beside, and should not be confused with, the Hot Metal Bridge which has been converted for pedestrian use. The two bridges once shared a single very wide through truss span at the northern end, but this is the span that was removed.
