The bridge is part of a historic district, and the NRHP nomination form for said district cites ca. 1936, so the NBI is definitely wrong.

It appears that the 1956 build date was supplied by the National Bridge Inventory. Not shocking that itís wrong, a lot of dates on the NBI are.

this overpass was built in the '30s by the WPA. You have the date way wrong.
