Geocache Description:


Washington Blvd Bridge

Built in 1931, this reinforced concrete T-beam bridge exhibits character-defining features of Beaux-Arts bridge design. Located on Washington Boulevard as it crosses the Los Angeles River between Boyle Heights and Downtown Los Angeles, the bridge rests on four vertical piers in T-style form. The deck of the bridge exhibits a sculpted concrete railing with incised stepped pointed arches. Eight octagonal decorative light fixtures with acorn finials sit atop mid-size pylons. Two pairs of monumental pylons lie at the entrance to the bridge and feature decorative terra cotta panels circumscribing the large rectangular forms. In polychromatic bas relief, these notable panels depict the process of designing and constructing a bridge. Figures representing engineers, truck drivers, and workers are seen erecting a bridge, with a depiction of the subject structure at one end. These monumental pylons are topped by a light fixture framed by scroll brackets.

Coords may be a little iffy.  The cache is directly across from the plaque in the photo above.
