The 130m long deck is parabolic in elevation and of steel box section that tapers in plan towards the centre of the deck. It carries a pedestrian footway that varies from 3m to 5m in width as well as a 2.5m cantilevered cycleway.
The main arch is also parabolic in shape and tapers both in plan and elevation.
The bridge takes as little as 4.5 minutes to rotate through the full 40° from closed to open, depending on wind speed. Its appearance during this manoeuvre has led to it being nicknamed the "Blinking Eye Bridge".

Slide 57: Hadley Parabolic Bow Bridge Hadley Parabolic Bow Bridge : Hadley Parabolic Bow Bridge The Hadley Parabolic Bow Bridge of Sacandaga River in Hadley, New York, United States is the only bow-string bridge still standing in the country and one of only two worldwide. The first bridge on this site was built in 1813 It carried traffic over the Sacandaga River between the hamlets of Hadley and Jessup's Landing (Corinth), until it was destroyed by fire in 1885 and substututed by an iron one.
The abutments and pier remaining from the covered bridge were repaired and extended to raise the road elevation. When completed, that same year, the bridge's two superstructures had an overall length of 180 feet. The short span was 44 feet 7-1/4 inches and the long span 136 feet and supported a roadway a little more than 17 feet wide and 45 feet above the river.
The term "parabolic" refers to the mathematical curve approximated by the trusses' chords, the "bows." While the "bows" of the larger span are more apparent because of their size, the trusses of both spans are in fact of the parabolic style.
