Design
The Green Bay Road Bridge, a reinforced concrete deck girder, is of local historical significance as a contributing element of the Thiensville Historic District. The district is historically significant as the principal commercial district of the village of Thiensville and for its association with the Bublitz family, who were instrumental in the development and growth of the village. The bridge railing design and period lighting standards contribute to the sense of time and place created within the district boundaries.
