Significance: North Broadway Bridge is one of the twelve historic bridges over the Los Angeles River determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. Its construction, spearheaded by the Eastside Improvement Association, speeded development of the residential area east of the Los Angeles River by providing street car transportation and an elevated automobile roadway over the Los Angeles River and the tracks of the Southern Pacific railroad. North Broadway was the first of the massive City Beautiful bridges constructed by the Bureau of Engineering between 1910 and 1933.
