Designed by Modjeski and Masters.

If you look closely, the piers are built with stone on the north side and concrete on the south side.

The entire bridge (east side too) is a concrete arch bridge, but thanks to a stone facade it looks like a stone arch bridge. The stone facade was chosen for this bridge not only for aesthetic reasons, but also because the stone would protect the concrete superstructure in the event of a flood that might carry ice and other heavy debris.
