Description 

This bridge is erroneously referred to as an ex-interurban bridge in both its listing on KHRI, and the NRHP nomination form. This bridge and the Iola Electric Railway bridge are differentiated in this bridge having inset railing details, whereas the Iola Electric Railway bridge had adornments/embellishments and ornamental arch keystones, not inset railings.
