What a darn shame this couldn't have been preserved as it was a really neat looking multi- span historical bridge. We have lost far too many of these.
Visited the bridge on April 4, 2017. Nicely viewed from the suspended pedestrian walk-bridge under the modern Robert E. Lee bridge. Multiple abandoned piers, a couple of which have foundations that are damaged and being undermined and will eventually crumble. Only one span still standing adjacent to Belle Island shore. No decking on bridge.
I do want to get out there and check the bridge remnants out.
