Bridge Documentation

This bridge is a type of bridge called a corrugated multi-plate steel arch bridge. It essentially is somewhat like a large corrugated metal culvert. The bridge design was developed by Armco in the early 1930s. The curved sections of corrugated steel form the arch ring, and earth fill is provided on top. Stone facing was often used on the spandrel wall for decorative purpose. This stone facing makes the bridge look like a stone arch bridge. A 1934 construction date was listed for this bridge. Mock stone arch bridges were somewhat common during this period in history, with many being built in park settings like this one with the aid of federal Depression-era relief funds. It is not known if this bridge was made possible by such programs, but if the bridge did have this association, it would increase the bridge's historic significance.
