Watertown city officials declared the existing Milwaukee Street Bridge unsafe in 1929 and began considering plans for erecting a steel girder or concrete bridge. Daniel B. Luten, a prominent bridge designer in Indianapolis, submitted a plan for an open arch concrete span. The Common Council accepted Luten's design and let the construction contract to the Eau Claire Engineering Company. The firm completed the three-span bridge in November 1930. The bridge is significant for its aesthetic lines and for its affiliation with the Indianapolis designer.
