Description 

Even though this bridge is a copy-cat prestressed bridge, it does have some "historic" significance here in our state. According to Jon Axline in his book "Monuments Above the Water", this is the first standardized prestressed concrete bridge built in Montana. It carries Bala Street in Crow Agency across the Little Big Horn River. Jon Axline - "Monuments Above the Water - Montana's Historic Bridges 1860-1956". Information is found on page 74.
