The four-span bridge was constructed in conjunction with a bypass project around the west side of the city of Brainerd. The abutments were set back from the river to provide for a recreational trail beneath the bridge. The bridge also includes a continuous low barrier with ornamental metal railings on one side to allow motorists to view the river.
