Significance: The Narada Cut-Off Bridge is the only surviving historic example in the park of a plain reinforced concrete girder bridge devoid of any specific details designed to harmonize with the landscape environment. Similar bridges were once employed at other crossings (e.g., Nisqually Glacier), but have since been replaced. Although widened in the early 1960s, the 1926 bridge retains its basic original appearance.
