Summary of Historic Significance
Bridge No. L-6007 is an unaltered, single-span, stone-arch highway bridge that carries an unpaved section of Skyline Parkway over Stewart Creek. Bridge No. L-6007 is historically significant as the most picturesque setting and design of any stone-arch highway bridge in the state. The bridge was designed as part of a scenic boulevard, now known as Skyline Parkway, which runs for almost 30 miles along the crest of a high ridge overlooking Duluth and Lake Superior.
