The bridge was built in 1957 as part of the new route for the A87 following the flooding of the old route built by Thomas Telford at the beginning of the 19th Century with the enlargement of Loch Loyne to generate Hydro Power. The bridge is a single span concrete arch structure with metal railings in place of parapets - a common feature on this piece of road. Due to the thickly wooded river channel it is difficult to see the bridge most of the year.
