Notes
Survey number HAER IN-99
Significance: The bridge is a two span reinforced concrete arch bridge designed by Daniel B. Luten and built by his construction company, the National Concrete Company, Indianapolis. Each ring of the 40 meter two span structure, rises 2.84 meters for a span length of 16.76 meters and, because it is raised vertically on the pier to increase the waterway area, is unsymmetrical. Few of Luten's bridges are unsymmetrical or have as much rise given in the span length...
