Construction on the bridge began in August, 1900. The new bridge was planned to open in October 1901, but wasn't completed until December, 1902. A later report on the delay found that the contractor hired to build the bridge was incompetent, and the bridge was completed by the City.
The current bridge is the third on the site. The first two, both made of wood, were built in 1875 and 1890.
