Great Smoky Mountains National Park Roads & Bridges, Luten Bridges, Gatlinburg, Sevier County, TN

 
 
description

Summary

Significance: The Luten bridges are a significant component of the transportation system in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Providing access to the first national park in the southern portion of the United States, this network of roads and bridges is representative of NPS park road design throughout the country. The Luten Bridges were built for developed areas and not originally intended for a national park; thus, they contrast greatly with the rustic style of bridges constructed under the authority of the Park Service. For additional information on the Luten Bridges, see HAER No. TN-35, historical overview pages 118-121.
