Significance: The Smokemont Bridge is a significant component of the transportation system in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Providing access to the first national park in the southern portion of the United States, this network of roads and bridges is representative of NPS park road design throughout the country. The Smokemont Bridge is a unique structure, unlike no other bridge in the park, consisting of a wood deck spanning the river between two stone abutments. For additional information on the Smokemont Bridge, see HAER No. TN-35, historical overview pages 117-118.
