  • Beautiful spot - nice connection to either side of the Thames parkway, nice walking bridge.
  • This bridge is pretty cool. I wish I could drive across it again but in the meantime is still a nice shortcut to downtown while on foot or bike
  • Very cool vintage bridge design. Here's hoping it remains as bicycle/pedestrian crossing only. No need for cars to be using this.
