    This bridge was closed down to vehicular and pedestrian traffic on January 18, 2008, since it's closure there has been nothing but complaints, wich is understandable it is a major bridge. However I can't get any straight information on it so....a quote and some pictures.

    From what I can gather this bridge was slated for repair or replacement in 1992, however I know the city had just reasently at the time replaiced Main Street bridge and funding was likely limmited.

    Here are the news paper articles (hopfully)
