This historic concrete arch bridge, begun in 1915, delayed by the war, and completed in 1920 as a memorial to its veterans, was a symbol of Albany throughout most of the twentieth century. Though a commendable effort by local preservationists stalled its fate, it was demolished in 2012.

    It was the first bridge to reopen after the 500 year flood in 1994.

    My husband and I had our first kiss under this bridge. 😘 Sorry to hear it has been torn down.
