This bridge consists of 4 separate design elements; from east to west: a 150 foot steel truss, two deck plate steel girders 100 foot each, a 25 foot steel stringer over a maintenance road, and a 400 foot timber trestle. Originally constructed in 1903 the river channel was modified with levees ca 1915 and improved once again ca 1950 after major floods.
