An old Scherzer bascule bridge before it was replaced by a trunnion type.
Webmaster's note: The photos that were here have been incorporated into the main site.
It should be noted that the bascule span (the main span) of this bridge was demolished and replaced. You can see this in progress in the Street View and see the before in Jonathan Maxwell's photos, and the after in Jason Smith's photos. The concrete arch approach spans are original however. This is very strange since concrete has traditionally been more problematic to repair than steel. Its also very disappointing. The replacement bascule leaves are ugly. No rivets, no ribs, just a plain flat arched wall of metal.
The correct name for this bridge is the "Martin Luther King Bridge"...
