The existing bridge was constructed in 1920 and is a single span structural steel pony truss with a laminated timber deck and an asphalt wearing surface. The bridge is in poor condition and is currently posted with a load limit. The bridge was closed recently due to the bearing seat deterioration and which was temporarily repaired allowing the bridge to reopen.
