Bridge Documentation

View Archived National Bridge Inventory Report - Has Additional Details and Evaluation

This is one of several impressive historic concrete arch bridges in the South Bend - Mishawaka - Elkhart area. This bridge was extensively rehabilitated in 2006-2007. The entire deck and railing system was removed at this time. The railings on the bridge today are not original, but have a historic-like design to them that may be similar to the original railings. This bridge has a 48 degree skew, which is quite a heavy skew. Skewed concrete arch bridges are somewhat uncommon, and so this adds to the significance of the bridge. The National Bridge Inventory gives a 1925 construction date for this bridge, but the rehabilitation plaque on the bridge states that it was built in 1913.
