This bridge is a traditionally composed earth filled concrete arch bridge. At the northwest corner of the bridge only, it has a curved railing to accommodate the northward turn the road takes. Despite its single span configuration, the bridge's span is of decent span length. The bridge is also noted for its lack of alteration. The construction of the bridge was extensively photographed. Some of these photos are shown in discussed below.
