Bridge No. 963The natural beauty of this deep, wooded ravine must have called out to the State Highway Department engineers who designed Bridge No. 963. In addition to employing an arched form, they detailed the spandrels and abutments with three sizes of plain circular disks, making unique an otherwise standard early 20th-century concrete arch. The dramatic geometric motif foreshadows the Department's parkway bridges of the 1930s.
