Description: The Rainbow Arch Bridge in Valley City, North Dakota was built in 1925. Over the years, the bridge developed structural problems and was rated “functionally obsolete,” the bridge’s deck geometry was rated “intolerable,” and overall the bridge was considered a “high priority for replacement.” Due to its narrow width, the bridge was a traffic safety hazard and the site of the most vehicular fatalities in Valley City. The bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997, due to its unique design, aesthetic appeal, and historical significance. However, rehabilitating the bridge was not an option. The residents of Valley City were divided on replacing the bridge with a less expensive modern design, or whether to spend more time and money rebuilding the bridge in accordance with the James Barney Marsh Rainbow Arch bridge patent, which hadn’t been built in 70 years. The Consultant worked with the public for two years to create a consensus. After numerous meetings and much discussion, the residents decided to keep the spirit of the bridge and build a replication of it. Original patent designs and photographs were analyzed and innovative bridge construction, intensive physical labor, and custom-designed materials were utilized to build the new Rainbow Arch Bridge. Despite obstacles that arose during the design and construction phases, the bridge was finished on schedule and under budget in November 2004. More importantly, the residents and visitors of Valley City can travel across the Rainbow Arch Bridge safely and absorb the bridge’s aesthetic appeal and history, which have become a cornerstone of Valley City.
