Construction date given is an estimated ca. date. The main spans of a bridge at this location was washed away in a flood in 1880, so it is assumed the lattice girder seen here dattes to soon after that flood. The arch approach spans may in part be older, if they were from this earlier bridge and they survived the flood. They could date to the 1700s.
