Twyckenham Drive Bridge

That's right - "twi-ken-ham." And they did replace the railings in the renovation with ones that are more sympathetic to the design!

A beauty of a bridge with a tongue-twister of a name! I'm guessing it is pronounced "twi-ken-ham" but I may be way off.

It looks like the original railings are long gone, so maybe (if we hold our breath) they will give it new ones that look more like the original ones.

A project to replace this bridge's deck; repair piers, columns, and beams; and add new lights and railings started 3/1/2010. The project runs through June, 2011.
