Hulton bridgeHulton bridge

This is the Hulton Bridge crossing over the Allegheny River taken earlier this year, and as you can see the fog was just burning off (and yes, the bridge is painted lavender!).   The bridge was built in 1908.  In September they started constructing a replacement bridge on the upstream side of the current bridge (photo is taken looking upstream).  Now there is all kinds of barges and equipment out in the water and I realized I will never get another picture of the Hulton Bridge like this.  Looks to be a two year project with an estimated demolition of this bridge to occur in the fall of 2015.  Change is good ... right???

This photo is in the 'Western Pennsylvania' gallery - and although the photograph itself is relatively new ... given the current status of what is going on I feel like it is a historical photograph as well.
