American Legion Memorial Bridge

The American Legion Memorial Bridge is a reinforced concrete arch bridge in Traverse City, Michigan. It was completed in 1930. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In 1929 the city commission called for a public referendum to decide if the city should build a bridge. The referendum passed in May and in June 27, 1929 Aldrich and Cook and Jerome Wilhelm were hired to build the bridge from Daniel Luten's designs. The constructed bridge differed from the design by the removal of the original handrails and by the addition of jersey barricades.
