Hopkins Street Bridge (Old)
Posted March 26, 2018, by Todd D Walker (mrwalk50 [at] gmail [dot] com)

This is an image of a postcard of a very familiar bridge from my childhood. The current concrete box replacement is showing deterioration as said over the years in the local paper. Defiance is replacing the Clinton Street bridge showing similar deterioration next year. I see the current Hopkins Street bridge the next project
