Description 

From a PDF report of County Owned Historic Sites & Properties: Squaw Creek Park contains a 1926 concrete bridge built when the Lincoln Highway was re-routed. While not directly accociated with the Lincoln Highway, it does have some potential significance as well-preserved example of early concrete road structures and certainly warrant some consideration of its continued preservation. Additional research into its design and history should be conducted in order to fully evaluate National Register eligibility. http://www.linncounty.org/files/download.asp?type=Adobe&mode...
