Milwaukee’s Cherry Street Bridge was constructed as a Public Works Administration (P.W.A.) project in 1940. “The Cherry Street Bridge is a bascule bridge that crosses the Milwaukee River just North of downtown. The 214-foot total length includes a 103-foot draw span. It was built in 1940 and is notable for its stainless-steel Moderne bridge houses.”
