The Eastwood Park Bridge was built in 1927 and spans the Mouse (Souris) River in Minot, North Dakota. At first glance, the bridge appears to be a rainbow arch bridge. Upon closer inspection, it is actually an open spandrel deck arch bridge with a cantilevered main (center) span and an ornamental pony arch railing. The pony arch span rests upon the deck of the bridge, which rests upon the cantilevered arms on the underside of the bridge. This design was necessitated by a requirement by Ward County for the span to be an arch bridge. The county feared violating the patent for the Marsh arch bridge, so T.W. Sprague was hired to create an alternative design with the look of the fashionable Marsh arch bridge but the function of a deck arch bridge. The result is the only "false arch" bridge in the state of North Dakota. An attempt was made to raze the bridge in the mid-1970s but outrage by locals led to a restoration and listing in the National Register of Historic Places. This is a highly unusual bridge with a fascinating history.
