Werird that they used vertical life like towers to convey the power for this swing span briddge.
So NYDOT is evaluating whether to repair or replace this, eh?
Well - and the towers in the pictures make me think this is the same bridge as in the article I'm posting - Friday's incident where a cruise ship was ripped from its moorings and drifted downriver only to get wedged underneath the bridge, can't have helped matters.
It lines/lined up with Livingston Avenue. First use of the name was during construction in 1901: https://books.google.com/books?id=q3mcAAAAMAAJ&dq=editions%3...
Very creative, I know, but there are several examples of such creative naming over the years, such as Monon's Hohman Avenue Bridge in the Chicagoland area.
Worked LAB for twenty years before retiring 5 1/2 years ago. Great place to spend the day.
Bridge is available for reuse:
