Notes
Survey number HAER OH-72
Significance: The Broad Street Bridge is significant because it is one of three integral parts of the riverfront reconstruction after the 1913 flood, the Town Street Bridge and flood wall are the other two parts. The flood destroyed many bridges and buildings along the riverfront in Columbus. Although the design and materials used for construction were common place, dating back as early as 14 A.D. with the Romans. The concrete arch that typifies the Broad Street Bridge was introduced in France by Jean Rudolph Perronet in the 1650's. The bridges and floodwall were the first step in a major restructuring of government agency locations in Columbus and a partial realization of the 1908 master plan. The district was determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places in November of 1986.
