Significance: The Marble Fork Bridge was an important link of the Generals Highway allowing for the road construction to continue to the General Grant Tree, creating a continuous loop connecting Sequoia and General Grant national parks in 1935. The concrete arch bridge with masonry facade is a good surviving example of the park service rustic aesthetic.
