The two concrete bridge structures on Macleod Trail over LRT/CPR and 78 Avenue South were constructed in 1980. Each bridge has three northbound and three southbound traffic lanes with a single northbound merge lane. The first structure is a single span over a connector to 78 Avenue South in Kingsland. The second structure is a two-span structure spanning the LRT and CPR tracks east of Macleod Trail.
Apart from regular maintenance and a new surface in 1993, the bridges have not undergone any significant rehabilitation since they were constructed.
