The new bridge is not called Fulton street bridge it is called the purple heart memorial bridge

Neither picture 3 or 4 depicts the old Fulton street bridge it was a vertical lift bridge but it had 3 spans the Alexandria span the main span and the pineville span and two towers

The third picture is not the former Fulton Street bridge. It is the Jackson Street bridge, which was built to replace the old Murray Street Bridge.

Also, the pictures are showing that the new bridge sits on the old bridge's piers.

If you just look at the pictures, you would see a modern bridge. If you look at the info, you will see that the page is referring to a LOST THROUGH TRUSS BRIDGE. Also the first comment on the page is asking if anyone has photos of the lost bridge that this page was created for. Sometimes people post a couple of pictures of the modern bridge to show what replaced it. Please get a life and stop cluttering up the forum page.

Anyone have photos of the original bridge? I can't seem to find any on the public internet.
