History & significance
Bridge 9395 was constructed in 1958. The continuous steel girder bridge carries State Highway 61 over the Beaver River in Lake County. It is significant as the first major highway bridge in the state to be constructed of girders that were welded instead of riveted or rolled. Welded beam construction was an innovative technique that allowed for reduced size and weight of structural members, lowered fabrication time and cost, and decreased maintenance requirements.
