Yeah, wow...smart way to use taxpayer money, replacing TWO historic bridges on a road who's traffic can likely be measured in "average yearly traffic"...

Was looking at the satellite image, which shows the beginnings of the new bridge on a different alignment. Was the old bridge left standing next to it?

This bridge has been replaced with a dull, soulless, concrete bridge.
