This richly ornamented bridge crossing a cemetery road not only functions as a grade separation, ensuring privacy for cemetery visitors, it is also a visual centerpiece landmark, functioning as a gateway for traffic approaching the Crown Hill Mausoleum. D. A. Bohlen and Son was the architect who designed the bridge. The bridge cost was $170,000. As beautiful as this bridge is for cemetery visitors, the view on 38th Street is hardly worth mentioning. The cemetery perimeter fence, which looks architecturally totally different than this bridge, continues right over this bridge. As such, people on 38th Street see an iron fence with red brick posts, which visually clashes with the stone balustrades which are partially hidden behind the fence. Span length given is an estimate.
