This is an uncommon bridge type that can be hard to classify visually, since this design looks much like a
continuous truss bridge with a suspended deck, but it also looks like a continuous through arch bridge. This bridge appears to be of the continuous arch variety.
The Beebe Orchard Company built the first bridge at this location which was a suspension bridge in 1919. The concrete towers of this suspension bridge remain next to the current bridge.
In 2009, a semi truck accident severely damaged a few members of the bridge, which were quickly repaired, including replacement of a couple members. Aside from this alteration, the bridge appears to retain good historic
integrity. All built-up beams and connections on this bridge are riveted.
