The LaSalle Avenue Bridge was built in 1907. It was designed by the Marsh Engineering Company of Des Moines, Iowa and built by the Concrete-Steel Engineering Company. The Marsh Engineering Company won the contract to construct the bridge for $84,750, which subcontracted it to the Concrete-Steel Engineering Company. When it was built, cheerful city officials declared “Permanent bridges of this character should hereafter be erected.” In 1999, the bridge was placed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).
