According to PAHBI, "The 1889, pin connected, single span, 103'-long, Pratt thru truss bridge is supported on dry laid ashlar abutments. The floor beams are connected to the lower panel points by Z-shaped hangers, a detail associated with the Pittsburgh Bridge Company, one of the most prolific fabricator of metal truss bridges in the state. One of two pin connected truss bridges in Warren County, the structure is historically and technologically significant as a complete example of its technology. Adding to its significance is its association with the Pittsburgh Bridge Company and its agent, Nelson & Buchanan Company."
