Significance: The two-span reinforced concrete, arch bridge was designed by the well-known engineer, Claude A.P. Turner. The Neoclassical bridge allowed the extension of Highland Boulevard, one of the city's most prominent addresses to the west. Mr. Turner, based in Minneapolis, is known for his many theories on concrete construction, including the flat slab construction method. The Highland Boulevard Viaduct is one of the earliest remaining Turner-designed bridges in the United States.
