Summary

Significance: The Lafayette Street Overpass, one of numerous grade crossing projects undertaken in 1938, was built to replace a narrow wooden bridge at this site. Like the nearby Maple Street Overpass (1936), this structure was a cooperative effort of federal, state, local and private agencies and is significant for its association with the historical development of Fayetteville.
