This bridge is a steel stringer bridge encased in concrete, and is nearly identical to the double set of railroad bridges directly to its west. These bridges, and highway bridge #4575 (pedestrian trail), were all built at the same time in 1926. This bridge's condition is much worse than the other two, with serious spalling and deterioration in many areas. Like its twin counterparts, this bridge is very heavily used by the railroad.
