Point Pleasant Canal Bridge (Old)
Posted July 10, 2016, by David Caputo (davidacaputo [at] msn [dot] com)

I am a life long resident of Point Pleasant and I have fond memories of the old route 88 bridge. I heard that the bridge was sold and it is somewhere in Texas. Is this true, and where is it now?

Thank You,

David Caputo
