Valley View Avenue Bridge

Map 

Description 

Bridge was erected in 1987 on the closure of the Bridge Street Bridge as a temporary replacement. When the Strathmore Co. closed in 1999, it became doubtful that the Bridge Street Arch would ever be repaired; only a few residences on the east side of the river require access, and the "temporary bridge" is likely to be permanent.
