Significance: The Vicksburg National Military Park tour roads provide access to areas of interest in the park, which commemorates and interprets the siege and defense of Vicksburg in 1863 during the Civil War. The tour route through Vicksburg National Military Park was designed primarily for vehicular traffic. The roads and bridges in the park are integral aspects of the commemorative landscape of the battlefield. The road-related structures in this park are significant both for their individual structural designs and their functional unity as part of a tour system. Initial construction of the basic road system took place during the early 1900s and was followed by a period of improvements, additions, and deletions by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. An additional period of improvement work was accomplished in the 1960s as part of Mission 66.
