History & significance
Bridge L5729 is a single-span, reinforced-concrete, filledspandrel, barrel-vaulted, elliptical-arch bridge faced with limestone. Modular block retaining walls and a small cast-in-place concrete wall has been added. 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. Bridge L5729 was designed by engineer William Pierce Cowles and architect Cecil Bayless Chapman and was constructed by the Security Bridge Company in 1911. The bridge is significant for its high artistic value, which reflects conscious design intent in response to its location in the park area of the Lake District, and as of the earliest known designs by Cowles.
