Main Street Bridge (Old)
Posted May 24, 2013, by James Cassady (yky46-bg [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Highly under-rated bridge, was very unique, kind of art-deco style. Sadly, no-one seemed to mind when it was torn down a few years ago to be replaced. I do like the new modernistic tilted-arch span, but not at the expense of the unique old Main St. bridge.
