Significance: Washington Boulevard Bridge is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places as one of a group of twelve significant bridges over the Los Angeles River. The bridge is architecturally significant for its decoration: four massive pylons, paired at each end of the bridge, which carry terra cotta frieze panels. The structure was an important element in the development of the Los Angeles transportation system as a link in the extension of Washington Boulevard from Alameda Street - a main commercial thoroughfare paralleling the Los Angeles River - to Soto Street in East Los Angeles.
