This is one of the few privately owned bridges in America. It was closed briefly for safety concerns in the early 1990s, but reopened. A toll of $1.50 is collected in each direction, on the Maryland side of the river. There is no charge for pedestrians and bicycles using the bridge. The bridge is decked in wood and does not have railings. It connects Green Spring Road in Allegany County with West Virginia Mineral County Route 1.
