What did they do to that poor bridge...
I have a full set of overview and detail photos, but nothing during re-erection. The bridge will be part of a future update package for the Bridge Browser. But wanted to let everyone know this bridge was back together. The bridge was erected in the 2nd half of 2013, according to news articles.
Nathan, do you have an article and photos of the reerection of the bridge? When was it put back into place?
The column sections on this bridge are rounded like the Independence Bridge. These are very much like Phoenix columns. Perhaps the Wrought Iron Bridge Company changed to the flattened sections to avoid having patent issues with the phoenix columns. Just a hunch.......
The pictures below show the two different styles. Notice how the connection of the truss members to the arch has changed as well.
This bridge has been moved into Foundation Park in Mt. Vernon where it is to be restored soon.
