4th Street Bridge
Posted February 28, 2022, by Paul Plassman

The pre-2011 NBI data gives this as a steel stringer built in 1922, so I'm uncertain whether this is an error or whether the "rehabilitation" in 1960 was really more of a replacement project in which the plate girders were replaced with stringers.
