I visited this beauty on my way back from NYC several years ago. While it wasn't in bad shape, I am certainly glad to hear it is being rehabbed.

It and the Mill Creek eyebar suspension bridge make a visit to Youngstown worthwhile.

Good news: the bridge is getting restored.

Bad news: someone working on the bridge got hurt.
