Mit ihrer Sandsteinverkleidung, den halbrunden Mittelsäulen und Kuppelabdeckungen überspannt sie die Volkach.

Die ursprüngliche angrenzende Furt durch. den Bach verschwand durch die linksseitige Aufmauerung 1935/38.

Bei der Flurbereinigung 1935-1948 wurde das Westufer angeböscht.

Die Sandsteineinfassungen als Brückengeländer mit ihren schmalen Gehsteigen trennten einst die Brückenbögen von der Fahrbahn.

Der jetzige Baukörper wurde 2007 errichtet.
