Construction began in 1911.
Bents 1-9 at the south end were built by 1914.
Work resumed on the trestle in 1918.
Fifty-five men were hired to build the trestle.
The trestle completed in 1920.
The cost to build the original structure is believed to have been $26,000.
The trestle's length is Length - 187.2 m (614 ft.).
Its highest elevation above the river is 44.2 m (145 ft.).
In prime condition, the trestle was designed to carry vertical loads of approximately 200 tonnes, plus impact allowance.
Fourty-four frame bents span the Koksilah River Canyon with an additional abutment at each end.
The majority of the bents are spaced approx. 4.5 m (14.75 ft.) apart.
The alignment is a horizontal curve of 7 degrees left.
Each frame bent has five vertical timber posts. The configuration of five post bents is surprising, as this was the norm for main line trestles and not usual for a branch line trestle.
An estimated 15,000-20,000 timbers were used to build the trestle. Most of the timbers were treated with creosote.
Originally, the Howe trusses were located at the top of the structure between bents 10 and 22, and spanned approx. 42.7 m (140 ft.).
The 1934 (current) Howe trusses, are positioned at the bottom of the structure between bents 12 and 20, and span approx. 29 m (95 ft.)
2010 estimated cost for the trestle rehabilitation is $7.5 million.
