"The bridge is a good example of open spandrel type arch construction, as described in engineering textbooks published during the first quarter of the twentieth century. This type of bridge construction is labor-intensive, and this design would not be considered cost effective or competitive in today's market place. The bridge setting is prominent and highly visible from adjacent commercial, public and park areas."
