Significance: The Harrisburg Bridge is a four span, cantilevered, poured concrete bridge with an open spandrel arch over the Virgin River. It is one of three open spandrel concrete bridges remaining in the State of Utah. The bridge was constructed by the Reynolds Ely Construction Company of Springville, Utah. The bridge provided more direct access to Zion National Park and other points of interest in southern Utah and northern Arizona. The increase in tourist traffic proved to be an economic boost to the economies of the town of Hurricane and other small communities of the region.
