This bridge is one of the most important and largest remaining examples of a bridge built by the King Bridge Company of Cleveland, Ohio, one of the most important and prolific bridge builders of the late 19th Century. It is also one of the rarest and most important bridges in the State of Texas.

An incredible combination truss bridge, this structure features two main Whipple truss spans (extremely rare in its own right as a multi-span Whipple truss) and two pin-connected Pratt through trusses, one at each end of the bridge. The bridge features decorative treatment in the form of builder plaques, finials, and knee bracing on the portal.

The bridge has been restored for non-vehicular use, and it is an area attraction and one of the most valuable historic resources in the area. The bridge retains original built-up fishtail style floorbeams.
