Significance: Fourth Street Bridge over Lorena Street and Bernal Avenue is significant as one of a group of bridges constructed in a planned effort by the City of Los Angeles to undertake monumental bridge construction that reflected the aesthetic and social ideas of the City Beautiful Movement. The bridge is also significant as an engineering achievement in catenary arch, reinforced concrete, bridge construction, and as a complex grade separation that assured the flow of traffic from Fourth Street downtown to East Los Angeles.
