Let me retract my last comment. Massman built the pier under the Hwy. 90 bridge. American Bridge built the super structure. Haydon Bridge built the approaches (a single span on each side I thinkg).

Massman Construction built the first bridge that was torn down in the 1990's and also built the bridge that was built in the 1990's.
