Summary

Significance: The Ten Eyck Road Bridge is a single lane, two span Pratt Standard pony truss that was erected in 1907. Built by the Elkhart Bridge and Iron Company of Elkhart, Indiana, the structure was identified in Cultural Resource Management in Wisconsin (the state's cultural resource management plan) as one of the state's two best examples of that bridge type. As well, Cultural Resource Management identifies the Elkhart Bridge and Iron Company as a prolific bridge builder in the state. With its integrity largely intact, the Ten Eyck Road Bridge is significant as an excellent example of an early twentieth century Pratt Standard pony truss that was built by a prominent regional bridge building company.
