It has a length of 4,113 feet (1,254 m) and was the longest continuous concrete arch bridge in the world when it was constructed in 1924–1926. It consists of thirteen arches each 304 ft (93 m) wide. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
Between 1940 and 1965, the bridge also carried the multiplexed designation of Highway 100.
From 1992–1994, the old bridge was demolished down to the arches and rebuilt from the arches up with the new wider deck two feet higher than the original.
