I figured y'all would like to see a rendering of what the new bridge will look like.

You'll want to update the status of the bridge as the draw portion of the bridge is now gone. The bridge is in the process of being demolished to make way for the high-rise replacement.

This bridge was renamed the "Veterans Memorial Bridge" in 1959. Connects Orange Avenue on the west bank, Silver Beach Avenue on the east bank. First bridge at this location was built in 1899, connecting "Daytona" with "Daytona Beach" (two separate cities at the time).
