Bridge was built between 1905 and 1910 based on when the contract was put out for bidding in 1905. The bridge was likely abandoned when the river changed course and widened based on satellite imagery. One span remains in the middle of the river and another span is abandoned on the south of the river in the tree line. Likely one span is lost.
