Arroyo Bridge

The Arroyo Bridge — 285 feet long and 75 feet wide — was constructed in 1927 in the style of a Roman aqueduct, spanning a deep arroyo. Years later, it was decided that the arroyo was strangling UCLA’s growth, so workers reinforced the sides of the bridge with concrete retaining walls and filled in the ravine. This gave the campus 24 more acres of usable land.
