The bridge was built by Cleary Brothers Construction Company, West Palm Beach, Florida, and was completed in 1965. A fishing-walking pier is constructed below the bridge and goes out the inlet along the jetty to the Atlantic.
The bridge has a total length of 1,548 feet (472 m) with a main span of 180 feet (55 m). The vertical clearance is 37 feet (11 m).
The Legislature of Florida dedicated the bridge to Robert W. Graves in 1965. In 2004 it was dedicated to James H. Pruitt.
