The Georgia Street Bridge was built in 1914 in one of the city's earliest suburbs, crossing over busy University Avenue where streetcars once traveled. The bridge's basic design is Romanesque Spandrel Arch with Mission Revival styling. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998. The decades have taken their toll and a major overhaul will include seismic and structural retrofits and upgrades to the crosswalks and byways along University Avenue beneath it to help safeguard motorists and pedestrians.
