Located on a rural county road near Beaver, this concrete and stone bridge spans a tributary of Beaver Creek in northeast Barton County. Bridge construction began in 1938 as a Works Projects Administration project and final cement work was completed in 1941. "WPA 1941" is stamped in the cement curb on the bridge. The bridge supports and foundation are made of native limestone, and the deck is made of concrete. Concrete bridge rails span the length of the bridge on each side. The county-owned bridge is nominated for its association with the WPA and for its native limestone construction.
