Broadway/Rockefeller Bridge to be Demolished


Today's Plain Dealer announced that the Rockefeller Bridge, closed since 2003, is slated by RTA to be demolished. This bridge was constructed in 1929 as part of the Cleveland Union Terminal (Terminal Tower) construction project in the '20s and '30s as the Broadway Bridge. The recently-replaced Adelbert Bridge beside CWRU was another old C.U.T. concrete bridge that time has overtaken.

Sorry to see the Bridge go. At times this bridge and the road south to south east has been known as Rockefeller. I suppose that is becasue the bridge went over the Standard Oil tanks where much of his money was made.
