Notes
Survey number HAER UT-62
Building/structure dates: 1924 initial construction
Significance: The Ogden River Bridge is a five-span, reinforced poured concrete structure built in 1924. It is a good example of an early 20th century reinforced concrete bridge. Construction of such large concrete structures at such an early date in the development of reinforced concrete structure was unusual. The bridge is also significant because it reflects the city's growth and expansion during the 1920s. In addition, this bridge was probably the last structural design by Fred Berne who built, among other important structures, the Ogden Egyptian Theater. Located on the Ogden River Bridge is the "Welcome to Ogden" sign, installed 55 years ago.
