This bridge is a good and relatively example of a cantilever truss bridge in Washington State. The approach spans on this bridge, originally including a timber design, are today replaced and modern concrete. The drawing above shows the original design. However, the main truss spans plus a single simple deck truss approach span remain in place today and with good historic integrity.
The bridge is also historically significant for association with Depression-era relief programs. It retains a standard federal-design plaque on it, which is testimony to the bridge's funding under the federal relief programs.
Steel for the bridge was fabricated by Poole and McGonigle Steel Company of Portland, Oregon.
The bridge was being painted when visited by HistoricBridges.org so some guest photos are included in the gallery.
