Significance: Beaver Creek Bridge was an important link in a scenic road system developed by the South Dakota State Highway Commission to facilitate motor tourism in the Black Hills. Although typical of concrete bridge construction during the 1920s, Beaver Creek Bridge represented a significant engineering achievement for this remote location. When built it was the longest, most complex example of its type in the state. The bridge and its approach roads were carefully coordinated to present motorists with striking views of the impressive structure spanning a rugged gorge.
