The wrought iron Whipple through truss (double intersection Pratt through truss) was constructed in 1881 by the Wrought Iron Bridge Company. The one-lane crossing was bypassed in 1951 and rehabilitated in 1979.
The Pleasant Valley Drive Bridge was closed in 2001 and dismantled and refurbished in 2004. Fabricated replacement members were manufactured by the Ohio Bridge Corporation of high strength steel and all parts were zinc metalized. The bridge was reassembled on site in 2005 and 2006.
