Milwaukee River Parkway, Lincoln Park, South Branch


The North Approach

This bridge looks like a typical arch bridge built in the Milwaukee County Parks during the depression. It is clad with lannon stone. The arch appears to be filled with dirt and paved over. The piers have triangle shaped edges, very similar to, and perhaps inspired by, the Charles S. Whitney bridge on Range Line Road.
