Retractile bridge on Warren Avenue connecting downtown Boston with Charlestown. A bridge had existed on this site since the 1820s, though it is unknown when the most recent iteration was constructed. Following the construction of the Central Artery bridge immediately to the west (since replaced by the Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge), it was demolished in 1962. In 1978, the Charles River Dam was built east of the site and still provides a narrow pedestrian passage across the river locks. Additionally, one pier remains in the river.
