The early years of developing limited access highways and parkways often included the construction of concrete arch and/or concrete rigid frame bridges that often had a decorative stone facing as well. Given that these early years coincided with the implementation of federal Depression-era relief programs, many of these bridges were funded under such programs. However, bridges of this type continued to be built in some cases into the ca. 1960 period. This bridge is one such example with a 1959 construction date. Its design likely reflects that it is part of the Blue Ridge Parkway. This bridge has a 47 degree skew.
