The bridge was built from native limestone that was quarried near the Beulah Highway.

The structure was originally built by the WPA, with an emphasis on teaching building skills in variuos related fields such as masonry, carpentry, electrical and plumbing, in order to train workers in a job skill useful in later work. The design and craftsmanship show the progression of workers in training. The structure is a physical representation of the struggles experienced by Puebloans and all americans to survive the great depression.
