Statement of Significance: The Gault Bridge has been determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places for its significance in the history of bridge technology in California. The Gault Bridge is the oldest three-hinge, steel arch bridge in California, and a rare, surviving example of this type of bridge construction. Designed by the American Bridge Company, the Gault Bridge was erected in 1903 by Clark and Henery, a Stockton, California contracting firm.
