Emma Long Metropolitan Park was constructed in 1941-42 by Civilian Conservation Corps Company 1805. The timing of the their work in the park and the proximity of the camp to this bridge suggest the likelihood that the CCC built this property between 1941 and 1942.
The structure is a three-span, concrete slab over masonry substructure. The masonry substructure consists of stone abutments, piers, and wingwalls.
