Description 

This Bridge was formerly the E. Commerce Street Bridge. It was Built and put in place on E. Commerce in 1880. There it was replaced with the Jones Street Bridge in 1914 and was moved to Johnson Street. The bridge was presumably destroyed before 1980 when a new Pedestrian only bridge was installed to replace it. The Finials from the Original Commerce Street Bridge remain on site at both ends of the new bridge.
