Significance: The Lindbergh Bridge is a three span reinforced concrete bridge which was designed by the Delaware County Department of Public Works. With a main span of 259'4", it was the largest reinforced concrete arch bridge designed and built by the county. The bridge is a fine example of the twin ribbed, open spandrel, arcaded parapet structures which were being constructed during the early part of the 20th Century. The concrete lamp posts with colonial fittings were a distinctive embellishment on the bridge. The bridge was named in commemoration of Colonel Charles A. Lindbergh who, one year earlier, had completed the first solo flight of the Atlantic Ocean. At the time of consideration, adulation for Colonel Lindbergh had swept across America.
