Four bridges have spanned the Barren River at this site. The center pylon dates from the first bridge that was built in 1838. The Confederate Army burned the 1838 wooden bridge when evacuating Bowling Green in 1862. The current bridge was built in 1915. This metal truss bridge remains one of the oldest highway spans across the Barren River.
