Situated in Great Falls, Montana, the Tenth Street Bridge is a historic structure in the country. Crossing the Missouri River, the structure was designed by architects Ralph Adams and George Shanley. Completed in 1920, it is the longest open-spandrel ribbed arch bridge in the state.

Sadly, in the 1990s, a new bridge was built in the Ninth Street. This posed a threat of demolition to the Tenth Street Bridge, which paved the way for preservationists to divert the demolition funds into preservation funds. Such actions were recognized by the National Geographic Society, National Trust for
Historic Preservation, Montana Contractors Association, Society of Industrial Archeology, Cascade County Historical Society, and the state of Montana.

The Tenth Street Bridge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as of 1996.
