Last piece of Bridge Street Bridge comes down

Posted: Updated:
WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, Vt. -

A final piece of the old Bridge Street Bridge has come down to make way for the new.

The last of three 140-ton trusses that used to make up the old Bridge Street Bridge in downtown White River Junction, Vt., and West Lebanon, N.H., was put on a specially built lifting barge Tuesday and moved over the river bank, where it will be cut up for scraps.

A temporary bridge now spans the Connecticut River between the two states until a new bridge can be built.
