Single Lane Bridges

1914 Bow String Bridge

Near my home is a suburban arterial road that hosts a cement single lane bow bridge.

The approach to this structure poses a real dilemma for commuters and locals alike. While everyone likes to feel in control at all times behind the wheel, at this juncture only one person controls the traffic, the one who decides to wait for the oncoming traffic and waves or flashes headlights.

On any given morning you can tell the state of the world by the courteousness or lack thereof in the crossing of the single lane bridge...

1914 Bow String Bridge

There is a new road widening planned with a new bridge which will speed the crossing of the river but it will change the dynamics of the bridge. The good news is that the bow bridge will be saved the wreckers ball and will be a pedestrian/bicycle access over the water.
