Significance: The Logan Creek Bridge is one of approximately seventeen prominent masonry and concrete structures on Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park, and is one of the oldest existing bridges on the road. The 51-mile stretch of scenic road is significant as a unique engineering accomplishment of the early twentieth century, and as the first product of a 1925 cooperative agreement between the National Park Service and the Bureau of Public Roads. The Logan Creek Bridge was part of the first contract following the landmark agreement.
