Worsham Street Bridge

So…where’s the bridge per the title in the post? I was a bit late, they tore the concrete arch bridge down in 2009 in Danville Virginia, across the Dan River. Given the number of other nearby bridges in the city across the famous river, and the cost of repairing it , officials closed it to traffic in 2004 and decided to demolish it. But, to preserve the memory of the bridge originally opened to traffic in 1928, this arch over the old centerline, along with a small park area was erected including historical markers. I like it when cities take action to preserve their past.
