Ash Street Bridge
Posted November 19, 2019, by Anonymous

This bridge has been demolished and replaced as part of the ongoing I-93 widening project between Salem and Manchester. The replacement bridge is of the same rigid-frame design as the original but clearly has the more modern appearance to it at the same time.
