Winfield Fries drew up the design for this bridge and the following year the same plans were used to build the Hays Bridge. I saw a copy of the blueprints and the name Murphin was lined out and replaced with the Hays name. It is not known if the Columbia Bridge Company (who fabricated the Hays Bridge) also built this one.
