The bridge consists of a typical 8-inch composite concrete deck with W27 beams supported on pile bent abutments. The bridge width is tapered from 55 ft. to 58 ft. wide and spans 59.5 ft. The flanking MSE Retaining Walls wrap around the bridge abutments and decorative precast panels are located at the corners.
