History & significance
Bridge L5722, constructed in 1911, is a single-span, reinforced-concrete, filledspandrel, barrel-vaulted, elliptical-arch bridge. The bridge carries two lanes of vehicular and pedestrian traffic on West Lake of the Isles Parkway over a channel between Lake of the Isles and Cedar Lake within the Grand Rounds Historic District. It was designed by engineer William Pierce Cowles in the Neo-Classical style. It is significant for its high artistic value, which reflects conscious design intent in response to its location in the park area of the Chain of Lakes District, and is also significant as one of the earliest known designs by Cowles.
