    Significance Statement
    Significant as an example of a concrete pedestrian bridge spanning the 170 freeway to connect two sections of Valley Plaza Park in North Hollywood. As such it is an innovative solution to connect two sections of the same park, making a freeway passable by foot. The bridge appears to be of local importance and may not meet significance thresholds for National Register or California Register eligibility.
