The enclosed area at the halfway point of the bridge has a lofted roof in the East Asian hip-and-gable style (Xieshan architecture) with the edges of the roof curled upwards. There are bridge towers at the endpoints on each side of the river. The bridge uses a combination of a pile foundation and a cantilever construction method. The wooden bridge house is richly carved and painted, and the inside of the bridge is outfitted with railings and wooden benches. Yonghe Bridge was first built in the first year of the Ming Chenghua Emperor and was originally called Yongning Bridge. It was later destroyed by fire during the reign of the Qing Shunzhi Emperor. The Kangxi Emperor rebuilt it in the 57th year of his reign and changed the name to its current name. In the fifth year of the Xianfeng Emperor's reign, two of the pilings were destroyed by floods, but they were rebuilt the next year. In the summer of 1911, flash floods from the mountains again destroyed two of the pilings, and they were again rebuilt the following year.
