Lorain-Carnegie Bridge
Posted December 28, 2008, by JADSKI (jadabrowski144 [at] gmail [dot] com)

I love Cleveland bridges. These statues you just cant help but to stare.Each one is different. My Fav is the old cement truck. It is so cool. If you drive from the east side across the bridge you wind up at another fav place of mine. The Westside market. The only thing that has changed there is the fashion of the day and the new coolers the merchant display food . One of the most coolest places to be on a sat afternoon. Bring a few heavy duty totes.
