Essay 

Written by Christopher Finigan

With the loss of the Lake Street Bridge and with the finding of this bridge, the old Bartlett Springs Road Bridge may well be the only remaining pin-connected through truss bridge in Lake County. I, like perhaps many others believe that this bridge should be preserved, restored, and reopened for pedestrian usage.
