Adelbert Road Bridge: then & now

The recent closing of the Adbelbert Road Bridge, linking CWRU with Little Italy, across the old Short Line, Nickel Plate and Cleveland Union Terminal railroad tracks, reminds me that we have photographs of its construction in 1929-30, in our Cleveland Memory Project's C.U.T. Construction Photograph Collection. Looking at these shots, there apparently was an earlier bridge, which was demolished and replaced with a longer, concrete span. It will be replaced by mid-2006, according to the city.
