Notes
Survey number HAER ME-42
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N347).
Building/structure dates: 1931 initial construction
Significance: Copied from a bridge in New York's Central Park, the West Branch Jordan Stream Bridge bears the Amphitheater Road across an intermittent stream on a narrow Roman arch. A major structure built to span a minor brook, the structure is largely faced with massive granite blocks, some of which are set into adjacent outcrops so as to appear to have been carved from the stone itself.
