Significance: The Lakeshore Drive Bridge is one of eight known masonry arch bridges in Arkansas, and one of a pair situated next to Lake No. 3 in the Lakewood Development area of North Little Rock, Arkansas. The Development area was an innovative housing project conceived by Justin Matthews and financed through his Metropolitan Trust Company. Certain design details, such as the vertical square columns incorporated into its spandrel walls, make this pair of bridges unique in the state.
