Description 

Interesting facts by Nathan Holt, "The bridge does appear to have been widened by a small amount at some point with concrete. As such non-original concrete is present at the piers and along the top edge of the bridge. Metal beams have also been added to the arch to strengthen and stabilize it." SOURCE: Historicbridges.org
