The Arthur A. Smith Covered Bridge is located west of Colrain’s village center, carrying Lyonsville Road across the North River a short way west of Massachusetts Route 112. The bridge is 100 feet (30 m) long, with an outside width of 17 feet (5.2 m) and an inside width of 12 feet (3.7 m), sufficient for one lane of traffic. Much of the slate on its gabled roof was reclaimed from the original bridge roof. The exterior is windowless with vertical pine board siding. The structure is of a Burr Truss. Ten braced king posts are tensioned by sweeping segmented timber arches that sandwich the braced posts.
