The North Washington Street Bridge is being nominated to the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion C with local significance as a good example of early twentieth- century bridge-building technology. The North Washington Street Bridge, which is the oldest known concrete bridge in Arkansas, illustrates early concrete bridge design in Arkansas, and the decorative detailing gives the bridge a level of architectural style that was not normally found in bridges of the period, especially in the state's smaller towns. The North Washington Street Bridge nomination is being submitted under the multiple property listing -Historic Bridges of Arkansas- and under associated historic context Early Transportation Era.
