This bridge is a small example of a rainbow arch bridge. It retains excellent historic integrity with no major structural alterations noted. The bridge carries 1st Street, which likely was at one time used by vehicles
following the US-101 corridor, but US-101 today bypasses the city and this bridge. However, US-101 is worth noting because further north on US-101 there is a series of rainbow arch bridges, and this bridge should be thought of as part of a
rare group of concrete rainbow arch bridges that remain standing. All the other rainbow arch bridges of this group are larger and have overhead bracing.
The historic significance of this bridge has been recognized with a plaque stating that the bridge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
