Sweetwater Bridge
Posted March 17, 2018, by Roger Deschner (rogerdeschner [at] gmail [dot] com)

This historic bridge, a Miami-Dade landmark, could become redundant after the completion of the FIU-Sweetwater University City Bridge, on the other side of 109th Avenue from this bridge. However the collapse of that new bridge during construction will prolong the need for this bridge, likely for quite a while.
