Notes
Survey number HAER OH-111
Significance: The 1913 flood destroyed or damaged many bridges and buildings along the riverfront in Columbus. While the West Third Avenue Bridge was not among those that were, it was replaced as a result of this flood and contributed to the partial realization of the 1908 City Plan and City Beautiful Movement. This would also be the first time that the riverfront was the main focus of civic improvements. The bridge is also an example of designer Wilbur Watson's work.
