Significance: Pinehurst bridge is one of the early twentieth century bridges built in Rock Creek Park. Constructed in 1910, the bridge is a reinforced concrete arch structure with stone facing. This rustic bridge was built as part of the plan to provide more enjoyable and scenic traveling routes for the citizens of Washington. The structure was widened in 1958 and the east side's design, although constructed approximately fifty years later, was similar to the west side. Thus, this side compliments the original structure while showing the more modern materials and the evolution of this type of masonry-faced concrete park bridge.
