Description 

This is a hybrid bridge. Originally built in 1925 as a two lane concrete arch bridge, it was rehabed in 1972 and 3 additional lanes were added to the existing structure, resulting in a unique structure. On the downstream side, it's a georgous & historic concrete arch bridge, but on the upstream side it lookes like any other boring modern bridge.
