The whole exterior of this bridge was resurfaced after 2001. Hence the "United We Stand" that is on it. It was in rough shape.

You can get close up and see the aggregate in the concrete using street view. There's also a 1910 date.

Longtime locals call this "The Peanut Bridge" because the tiny stones making up the surface finish of the bridge resemble shelled peanuts.
