Significance: The North Inlet Bridge, a single span through-girder bridge, was built from the designs of architect D.H. Burnham & Co. and structural engineer C.L. Strobel. Strobel was a pioneer in skyscraper construction and designed many important large bridges over the Mississippi, Missouri and Ohio Rivers. The bridge is a significant part of the permanent improvements to Jackson Park, planned by Frederick Law Olmstead, notable nineteenth century landscape architect, the site of the influential World's Columbian Exposition in 1893.
