Significance: The Bert Parsons Bridge is an excellent example of a steel, rigid-connected, Pratt through truss designed by the Wisconsin State Highway Commission. Constructed in 1914, it is one of the first bridges of its type in Wisconsin built according to a standardized state plan. In its design and material, the Bert Parsons Bridge exemplifies a once common bridge type. As one of the few remaining structures of this type, the bridge has been declared eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.
