West Avenue Bridge (Old)
Posted December 10, 2021, by JIM STEWART (JAMESEMSTEWART57 [at] GMAIL [dot] COM)

THE PIN SHOULD BE MOVED ABOUT 2.8 MI EAST ALONG BUFFALO ROAD, WEST AVE. AND WEST MAIN ST. TO THE INTERSECTION OF BROAD ST. AND MAIN STREET. THIS MEANS FROM THE BARGE CANAL TO THE OLDER ERIE CANAL.
