Design
The Box Canyon and Nickel Creek bridges on the Stevens Canyon Road are holdovers or survivors of the rustic style design employed widely as early as 1920. The two stone-faced reinforced concrete spandrel arch structures echo designs employed by the National Park Service in the 1920s and 1930s. The Nickel Creek Bridge was the last of the style constructed at Mount Rainier National Park.
