Significance: This bridge is significant in the areas of transportation, local history, and engineering. it is the fourth of a series of bridges located at this site since 1856. It is significant from an engineering standpoint because it utilized existing piers of the preceding truss bridge (with new piers added between) and the existing bridge was constructed underneath the truss bridge. After completion, the truss bridge was removed, interrupting traffic only a few hours during the entire construction process. The bridge was determined to be eligible for the National Register of Historic Places on August 19, 1981.
