The old Arsenal Street UPRR bridge was designed similarly to the Columbia Street Bridge, about 1/2 mile to the north. Both were built in 1913 and had the "1913" date stamp on the concrete balustrades. It also had metal art-deco fence approaches. Unlike the Columbia Street Bridge which has a flat surface, the Arsenal street bridge had a hump in the middle.
