Curtiss Parkway Bridge
Posted November 27, 2011, by Matt Lohry

I took pictures of this bridge and the nearby Hook Street Bridge today. Both of these bridges are movable but are apparently no longer in service, driven home by the fact that in between these beautiful truss bridges, which are only hundreds of yards apart, is a very ugly modern beam footbridge, same height as the others, but definitely not movable.
