The Bridge is representative of the type of bridge that was being built at the turn of the century. Also significant, because of the attention it had since its inception and resultant completion, and because of the direct relationship the bridge holds in the development of and communication between the surrounding communities of Sewickley and Coraopolis.
-- Historic American Engineering Record
Surviving finials from this bridge are currently located: In the park in front of St. James School at Sewickley. A second is off of Chestnut Street near the RR tracks and river and is abandoned and may be preserved in the future. The third finial is in Coraopolis and the fourth is at Station Square near the Smithfield Street Bridge in Pittsburgh.
