Documentation compiled after 1968.

Notes
Survey number HAER DC-18
Building/structure dates: 1929 initial construction
Significance: The Old Military Road Bridge is not typical of the early bridges constructed in Rock Creek Park. Unlike most park bridges designed to be harmonious with the surrounding environment in the selection of materials and design, this steel beam bridge with concrete abutments stands in sharp contrast to the picturesque setting.
