It was originally built by Henry Flagler as part of the Overseas Railroad which was completed in 1912. It was converted for highway use in 1938 after the Labor Day Hurricane of 1935.
Today, the former bridge provides a scenic overview of the area for tourists. Two of the truss spans have been removed in order to facilitate boat traffic. The bridge has fallen into a state of disrepair and signs have been posted on the bridge warning boat traffic to watch for falling debris.
