39th Street over Fall Creek

Indianapolis, Indiana

This historic preservation project involved the rehabilitation of the historic 39th Street Bridge over Fall Creek. The 242-foot-long, 3-span, stone-faced, earth-filled concrete arch bridge was completed in 1905 using a Melan design and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Indianapolis Park and Boulevard System. The rehabilitation helped to ensure the continued utility and survival of this historic structure and also provided a key pedestrian linkage between the Fall Creek Greenway and the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
