Description 

Completed in 1925, this 140 foot long bridge soars high above its namesake near Jordan Cliffs. The two-rounded arches are tall, narrow 8-foot spans, separated by a delicate pier and outlined by slender radiating voussoirs. The entire stone and mortar substructure is clad in quarry-faced random laid ashlar. Set into the spandrel of the arches is a plain, circular medallion into which has been carved the year 1925.
