The fourth bridge to span the Rocky River was opened from Rocky River to Lakewood in 1910. Its outstanding features were its twin unreinforced concrete arches of 280 feet, a world record at the time. It was the first long concrete arch bridge to be built using steel truss forms, rather than wood, and the last one not to have reinforced arches. The overall length was 708 feet.

The bridge was listed as one of the most beautiful concrete bridges in America and aided the development of the lands to the west of the Rocky River.

Due to deterioration of the bridge, it was demolished in 1980.
