I just added a video from a news broadcast of the implosion of this bridge. I don't think the demolition of this beautiful landmark bridge was anything to cheer about like the people did on this video. The new bridge is the mother of all Ugly Concrete Eyesore Bridges. When I think of UCEB I think of the new Jamestown Bridge. This bridge like many others held very fond memories for me as it was a part of the many trips I took to Cape Cod with my grandmother as a child.
I normally don't change main bridge names but everybody including the locals called this the Jamestown Bridge and then the Old Jamestown Bridge.
This bridge was replaced with a modern concrete structure and was imploded either in 2004 or 2005....
