This is a rare riveted through truss bridge that remains in use on the main railway in Vietnam. Lengths given are extremely rough estimates. The bridge has been reconstructed in some manner since its original construction. At the ends of the top chord at the portal bracing there is a small extension that was flame cut off, indicating either the truss or the portal bracing has been altered from its original design. Also, the piers under the bridge are not original. The ruins of original stone piers with the unique masonry found on French-built bridges remains under the bridge next to the existing piers.
