|August 1999 (34.06667 Degrees, -118.22333 Degrees) Los Angeles River Bridges|
The next bridge downstream over the Los Angeles River is the North Main Street Bridge, a reinforced concrete deck arch built in 1910 by Carl Leonhardt and H.G. Parker. It is a three span, open spandrel arch, 300 ft long and 56 ft wide. It has a modern look for a 105 year old bridge with flat arch segments and minimalist openings for an open spandrel arch. It's as if the designers were showing how much shallower a three span arch bridge could be than the North Broadway Viaduct. The Bridgehunter mentioned that this bridge is currently being retrofitted, hopefully without changing it's interesting appearance.
