The bridge was built in 1888, with a linear grid and an inverted arch on the underside of the bridge. The arch range was 78 meters and the arch arrow was 10 meters. It was supported by stone-built walls on both banks.

Destroyed bridge on the Neretva was twice-built and twice-destroyed during its history, hence the structural deviation from the original.
