Lincoln Avenue Bridge
Posted June 22, 2016, by Robert Elder (robertelder1 [at] gmail [dot] com)

According to the NBI, this bridge was built in 1930, but as you can tell from the Streetview, it is much older than that. I have listed the date on Bridgehunter as ca. 1900.

The bridge has been repaired and reopened. The NBI lists the bridge as possibly eligible for the NRHP.
