This bridge is a gorgeous four panel truss bridge that once separated two railroad grades. Today both lines are abandoned, but remain in use for snowmobiles. The bridge's structural steel is built-up, and V-lacing is present on all members, and also under the top chord and end post, and the bottom chord. The portal bracing and one set of sway bracing features a lattice design. The bridge is seated on concrete abutments.
This bridge is technologically significant as an example of a Baltimore truss, which is less common than the mainstream truss configurations, the Pratt and the Warren. It is also locally significant as one of the last remaining metal truss bridges of any kind in northern Wisconsin.
