Description 

The St. Anthony Street Bridge is significant in the areas of engineering and transportation, specifically for its age, size, length of truss for this age, and builder. The Champion Bridge Company is one of the nation's oldest bridge-building firms still in business today. In addition, the existing stone masonry abutments were built to support earlier wooden bridges. The bridge has been determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.
