This bridge carries the abandoned Croton Aqueduct across both Broadway and the Killbrook Stream. The lower roadway is also a bridge and forms the lower half of Ossining's famous "Double Arch." Unfortunately, it is so overgrown that it's difficult to see both arches together. The upper arch is now a pedestrian walkway.
