Cass Street Bridge
Posted May 25, 2012, by bob leonard (mcbobleonard [at] yahoo [dot] com)

This old reliable bridge is the way old timers escape downtown to beat the Driday traffic. With the Republican Convention in August Tampa's other two downtown bridges will be a mess of security and slodowns. Cass Street will be how people go home to beautifult South Tampa. Bridge goes between the huge Performing Arts Center and Library. Across the street it passes the U of Tampa baseball stadium and Tampa Prep.
