A wood-sided, gable-roofed structure sheltered a Pratt-truss bridge, with a single span of 140 feet and a height of 35 feet. According to the National Register of Historic Places (1976), it was " of the tallest covered bridges in the U.S." (See William J. Murtagh, National Register of Historic Places, Washington, DC: US Department of the Interior, National Park Service, 1976)], p. 75.)

This bridge was renovated during the Depression Era, in 1938, to accommodate pedestrian traffic.
