History: 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.[1] When it was built, cheerful city officials declared “Permanent bridges of this character should hereafter be erected.”[2] In 1999, the bridge was placed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).
