This bridge is entirely in Erie County. Should be removed from Niagara county.
I remember going over this bridge in a car in the early 70's before it was transitioned to pedestrian use only. Originally, the pedestrian walkway was cantelevered on the south side of the bridge and the deck made up of boards- very freaky for a kid to walk over! It was at this juncture of Ellicott Creek and Tonawanda Creek that the Erie Canal was dug on it's way south to Buffalo, along the Niagara River.
