The Shakespeare Bridge was built in 1926. It was named the Shakespeare Bridge because of the Gothic towers and the arches. It allows Franklin Avenue to cross a deep ravine. Built of concrete, it was rebuilt in 1998 after the Northridge Earthquake for seismic strength. During the retrofit, the deck, sidewalks and railings were removed and rebuilt with reinforced concrete. The bridge was declared an Historic-Cultural Monument in the City of Los Angeles (No. 126) in 1974.
