An iron bridge supported by poured concrete piers, the bridge spans the Eno River, on the south end of the district, accessible from Gold Park on Dimmocks Mill Road. The iron bridge, assembled with heavy rivets, features diagonal bracing under the railroad ties. A plaque on the north end of the bridge reads, “Built by the Virginia Bridge Iron Co., Roanoke, VA, [1969]” though the date is difficult to read.

This bridge was likely reconstructed in 1969; the lower brick sections of the abutments are much older as this section of the railroad was originally constructed circa 1854.

It is State resource # OR1183.
