Girders which supported the west street car track were welded off with a blow torch.
Thanks to the pedestrian conversion, they can now be seen.

Navigation beacons?  Bug zappers?  These mysterious blue lights were installed after the

During the 2002 repainting, every necessary and unnecessary piece of the bridge was painted.
