Description 

The Teton Canyon History Project reports the following:

"The bridge may have been a 1920s-1930s Forest Service bridge built at another location according to oral interviews. It was dismantled and installed in it's present location by WWII POWs."

It is assumed the NBI 1944 date refers to the relocation date.
