Baring Creek Bridge (1931)

Constructed in 1931, Baring Creek Bridge is a seventy-two foot long reinforced concrete arch with a stone masonry facade. The bridge constitutes one of the final links along Going-to-the-Sun Road, and designed to be unusually high and long to minimize the destruction of the natural landscape and to allow for an existing hiking trail to pass underneath unobstructed.
