Stone Way Bridge
Posted May 31, 2020, by Alex (reboot [at] scn [dot] org)

My understanding is that this was a temporary bridge erected during the construction of the ship canal and locks. The existing bridges over the waterway had to be replaced with drawbridges tall enough to accommodate the ship traffic that was to come.
