Pete,

Thanks for adding the picture!

Clark & Mike,

Thanks for confirming the location. I thought I had researched it and posted a location previously but it must have been another bridge.

Regards to all,

Art S.

If that was you who added coordinates for it, then you've got it just about right, methinks. Seeing as Throckmorton Avenue is just the other side of that curve. And the guardrails along the curve now suggest there was a need for/use of a bridge at one time.

According to:

Throckmorton's bridge is on East Front Street. (See the report on court case right below the word "December" on the front page.) If so, it can't be found using street view, so probably replaced.
