Seventh Street Bridge
The original 1910 Seventh Street Bridge had a single deck and was built at grade level of adjacent railroad tracks, requiring extra caution when driving onto and off of the bridge. By the 1920's, automobile travel had surged and bridge traffic often was jammed at a standstill. The solution was to build a new bridge at a level above the tracks and instead of razing the original bridge, the current Seventh Street Bridge, completed in 1927, was built directly on top of its predecessor, which is why it has a double decker appearance, although only the top deck is in use.About the Design Motifs
