The main span is a 13 panel truss with a length of 215 feet, making it the longest single span lenticular truss remaining with Pratt truss webbing built by the Berlin Iron Bridge Co.. While longer spans are extant employing the lenticular truss, these examples utilize a Warren web, and reached lengths of up to 280 feet. Also its important to note that this is the longest extant single span with Pratt webbing, as there are records of longer spans then this having been made. Perhaps because of its longer length this bridge exhibits a quite strong construction, with boxed built up members being used on all compression members.
The approach span is a 5 panel pony truss, and exhibits the typical features of a later Berlin Iron Bridge Co. pony truss, such as bolted (instead of pinned) endposts and tapered vertical posts. At 80ft this is a pretty significant length, but certainly not the longest example made.
The bridge, as noted, retains a excellent amount of historical integrity, with no obvious modifications to the bridge. Decorative details common to Berlin Iron Bridges (such as cast iron finials, portal cresting, railings, and builders plaque are all still in place (although there has been some loss of portal cresting and finials)). The deck has been removed and replaced with a narrower pedestrian walkway, but this doesn't represent a major loss as the wooden deck had been replaced at some point before abandonment with a metal grating deck (The stringers are gone, but the original fish-belly floor-beams are still in place.)
