Fulton Bridge
Posted July 8, 2011, by Clark Vance (cvance [at] dogmail [dot] com)

When I lived in this area in the mid '70s I believe there was an accident involving two semi trucks that sideswiped on this bridge. This is a beautiful structure but it was built for 1927 traffic. Fortunately, this bridge was bypassed and so it is probably not a priority to replace it.
