Blackstone River Bridge

Works for me; the NBI listing had Blackstone River listed when I added the street view so I left it intact not knowing the historical canal/river alignment through here. Thanks for the correction!

Actually, this bridge is over the Blackstone Canal where the canal made a loop off of the river to avoid the Blackstone Gorge. Water in the loop was later raised and is now used for power generation. This bridge is currently being rebuilt.
