Built in 1921, the existing bridge is 23 feet long, 24 feet wide and utilizes steel beams with a concrete deck.  It is a two-lane bridge with no shoulders and no pedestrian accommodations.  Current sufficiency rating for the bridge is 48.9 out of a possible 100 and is classified as scour critical.  The new bridge will have wide shoulders installed, have updated crashworthy railings and eliminate the scour critical classification.
