Notes
Survey number HAER NV-8
Building/structure dates: 1938 initial construction
Significance: The East Verdi River Bridge is one of only two examples of single span concrete arch-thru bridges in Nevada. This type of structure has been rarely used in this state. Given the complexity of design and construction several other types of structures were in wide use that would have spanned the Truckee in a more cost effective fashion. The open arch design is aesthetically pleasing and integrates well with the environment. The concrete balustrade is a blend of art deco and classical design elements. This bridge was a vital crossing point along old US-40, the first transcontinental highway.
