This triple-arch bridge spanning the Scajaquada Creek in the center of Forest Lawn was built of limestone in 1888.

The railing on each side of the bridge is a nine-foot section balustrade of a stone-like material.

This and three other bridges in the cemetery , which were built to replace wooden bridges, were constructed of limestone quarried from the cemetery at 1411 Delaware Ave. at Delavan Avenue.
