Long Description:
This two lane bridge, built in 1960, carries State Highway 21 over the Kettle River just south of the village of Curlew. A Polygonal Warren through truss bridge, it rests on heavy concrete seats with abutments and wing walls each end. There are essentially no approach spans to the bridge. Each side of the bridge has a narrow walkway.

At each end of the bridge, on the right side, is a large rounded concrete post supporting railing ends which bears the year of construction of the bridge.
