Description 

The bridge was one of a series of small stone and concrete bridges constructed as WPA projects along a road across the Red Wire Pasture on the Day-Miller Ranch. This ranch road was improved to accommodate vehicular traffic, namely school buses, at a time when the numerous schools on the adjoining ranches were being consolidated.
