While this bridge looks like a much
older design, it was built in fairly recent times. Bridges are
rarely being built with these large superstructures. Rather,
if it were built today, it would likely have been built as a
cable stayed bridge. It would also have been built with wider lanes,
shoulders, a center divider, and a bicycle path if it had been
built in the last decade.
This bridge replaced a much older and more
famous Lyons-Fulton Bridge that was located a mile or two upstream.
The older bridge was once part of the Lincoln Highway, and once
carried US-30. US-30 now follows an alignment that takes it to
the south side of Clinton.
