The Washington Street bridge, completed in 1921, was dedicated to the "sons of Delaware who joined forces of their country in The Great War" on Memorial Day, 1922. The 250 foot, open spandrel arch bridge serves as a lasting and rare example of monumental architecture in Delaware. Upon completion, it was considered the longest bridge of its kind in the Nation. Not only monumental in scale, the bridge memorializes Delawareans who served in the military. Bronze tablets on the eight main pylons commemorate veterans of the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Mexican-American War, Civil War, Spanish-American War and World War I.
