For those traveling by vehicle on Greenville’s North Broadway it is necessary to cross Greenville Creek. The 120 foot bridge that makes this possible is classified as an historic civil engineering landmark.

The bridge was designed in 1909 by Walter P. Rice of Cleveland. It is believed to be the longest non-reinforced three-hinged single arch concrete bridge open to traffic in the United States.

Another unusual element is that on the bridge’s southeast corner a house was built right on the retention wall. RMB
