A Piece of Cleveland’s History

In 1918, the Veteran’s Memorial Bridge was celebrated as the world’s largest double-deck, reinforced concrete structure, and was also listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. The Veteran’s Memorial Bridge is 96 ft. tall and 3,112 ft. long, connecting Detroit and Superior Avenues over the Cuyahoga River Valley in downtown Cleveland. The subway served as a major hub for commuter transportation until the discontinuation of the service on January 24, 1954.
