History & significance

Bridge 5083 was built in 1931 and carries State Highway 19, also known as College Drive, over the Redwood River in downtown Marshall in Lyon County. The reinforced-concrete, deck-girder structure has a 30-degree skew, reinforced-concrete abutments with concrete-slab approach panels, and a reinforced-concrete pier. The bridge separates Liberty Park from a residential neighborhood. At the time of construction, the highway and bridge bisected Liberty Park. As a result, the bridge was designed to include ornamental features, including Classical Revival light standards and concrete posts with recessed panels, as well as architectural details, including curved concrete floor beam ends, rounded piers and abutments, and recessed abutment panels. The concrete highway bridge is significant for displaying notable design aesthetics.
