Sepia Saturday - The Bridge of Traffic
It was a rather frightening bridge to cross. As you can see it was wooden decked and held up by rotting wooden pilings. Trucks and buses were prohibited from this bridge.
The lower photo shows the new Veteran's Bridge which was designed as a "flyover." On the far right is the pier from the original Essex Bridge. In both photos you can see the train bridge still in use by the MBTA.
There are no traffic backups. No bottle necks. No longer will traffic have to stop and wait out the boat traffic. No longer will there be a fear of the bridge under your car crumbling into the sea.
