East Main Street Bridge
Posted November 18, 2015, by Nathan Holth (nathan [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

Someone needs to clean this page up, its too big a job for my time and ability. There was a historic concrete arch here, but it was demolished in 2005 and replaced. Photos show the replacement bridge which I assume isn't even an arch. But the description here talks about the historic bridge.
