Notes
Survey number HAER WI-66
Building/structure dates: 1914 initial construction
Significance: Crossing the Chippewa River in southern Sawyer County, Wisconsin, the Heath Bridge is a steel, riveted, two-span, overhead, Pratt truss highway bridge. Constructed in 1914, it is one of the first bridges of its type built in Wisconsin according to a standardized state plan. It is also one of only two bridges recognized by the Wisconsin Historic Bridge Advisory Committee as "the best examples of Pratt overhead trusses" built in Wisconsin between 1911 and 1925. In its design and material, the Heath Bridge exemplifies a once common bridge type and, as one of the few remaining, was declared eligible for the National Register of Historic Places in the spring of 1991.
