Eugene A. Carter Memorial Bridge
Posted August 9, 2013, by Michael Miller (michael_a_miller [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Here is a picture I took in the Spring of 2012 upstream on the northern bank of the Kanawha River. The Patrick Street & C&O Railway Bridge are both in the background.

Before the bridge was named after Eugene Carter, it was known as the Fort Hill Bridge.
